Hello! MenEngage Africa invites you to a round-table discussion that is taking place as part the ongoing Ubuntu Symposium. The roundtable will focus on the impact of COVID-19 stimulus packages in Sub-Saharan Africa and its effect on GBV interventions.
We are inviting partners to come hear an overview of research commissioned by Sonke Gender Justice on the impact of initiatives aimed to reduce the gendered impact of Covid and for colleagues from MenEngage Africa to share their experiences in terms of how they have experienced stimulus packages in their countries, what impact this and the pandemic in general has had on gender issues.
- To provide an overview of the gendered effects of COVID 19 in Sub Saharan Africa.
- To understand the impact of Stimulus Packages in addressing GBV and the gendered impact of COVID 19 in Sub Saharan Africa.
- To explore possible ways of mitigating some of the effects of COVID 19 and its responses.
