EVAWIA Response to COVID19 in Albania

June 22, 2020

Emerging Gender Impacts

Women and girls’ roles in their homes and communities – such as domestic and unpaid care responsibilities and as frontline health and social sector responder roles – increase their exposure to COVID-19. Being aware that under the self-isolation circumstances, the situation of women and girls, victims of GBV/DV can worsen even more due to limited access to specialised support services, and a rather weakened institutional multi-sectorial response to their needs, UN JP “Ending Violence Against Women in Albania” (EVAWIA) has been working very closely with both central and local governmental authorities responsible for coordination and provision of specialized support services to Gender Based Violence (GBV)/ Domestic Violence (DV) victims.
