World Health Assembly COVID-19 Response Urges Leaders to Strengthen the Voices of Women

Every Woman Every Child fully supports the COVID-19 response plan laid out in a resolution at the 73rd World Health Assembly.

The Resolution calls for unity and solidarity at all levels to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. It emphasizes the importance of meeting the needs of low- and middle-income countries and promises to support all countries in the implementation of their multi-sectoral national action plans and in strengthening their health systems.

Importantly, the Resolution acknowledges the need to ensure fair distribution of all quality essential health technologies to tackle the pandemic. In doing so, we are taking critical steps to protect vulnerable populations, particularly women, who represent the majority of the health workforce, children and adolescents.

It prioritizes the importance of continuing to support sexual and reproductive health and urges leaders to strengthen actions to involve women’s participation in all stages of decision-making processes, and mainstream a gender perspective.

Global Emergency Funds Must Not Be Pocketed by Corruption - Gender

Some of the inflows of emergency funds will be pocketed by government officials, some will be stolen by managers of health facilities and some will be used to buy overpriced, locally produced gowns and face masks and other essential supplies by businesses paying kickbacks to government contractors. Others will be circumvented by watchdogs, outed by undercover journalists, thwarted by honest government employees, and pressured by engaged citizens.

A farmworker in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Poor countries heavily dependent on foreign aid have received some debt emergency relief by official global lenders during the pandemic. But that opportunity can also open channels for corruption, the author says, making transparency imperative.

By Frank Vogl -  May 28, 2020

Fears abound as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps across the poorer nations of the world, not only about appalling levels of death and economic depression but also about criminal opportunism. Never before have agencies in the United Nations system, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and other official lenders and aid agencies moved on such a giant scale so rapidly to provide relief. But will these vital resources be stolen?

Elder Abuse in the COVID-19 Era - Older Women

S. Duke Han PhD - Laura Mosqueda MD

First published:20 April 2020

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19) is particularly deleterious to older adults,1 and there has been a massive increase in reports of elder abuse during the pandemic. Reports of elder abuse range from financial scams to incidents of family violence, with public warnings issued accordingly from the Federal Trade Commission2 and the American Bar Association.3 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines elder abuse as an intentional act or failure to act by a caregiver or another person in a relationship involving an expectation of trust that causes or creates a risk of harm to an older adult.4 Abuse of older adults can be physical, emotional, financial, neglect, or any combination of these. To better understand the complex dynamics that lead to elder abuse, our group developed a theoretical model called the Abuse Intervention/Prevention Model (AIM5). This model focuses on three core and intersecting considerations: (1) the vulnerable older adult, (2) the trusted other, and (3) the context in which the abuse occurs. We consider each of these in relation to the COVID‐19 pandemic and end with suggested ways to mitigate the risks.
