Women working in the garment industry are disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. They face huge risks to their health and livelihoods, an increased burden of unpaid care work, additional barriers to accessing sexual and reproductive health services and increased risk of gender-based violence (GBV).
CARE’s response to the pandemic focusses on protecting the rights of women. We are supporting women workers to adopt COVID-19 prevention strategies, access support services – including health, psycho-social, sexual health and GBV services – and receive vital financial support.
