Webinar 17: Men and COVID-19 – How are men affected by COVID-19 and how can the response better include them?

Date:  July 17th 

Time: Fridays at 1pm Irish/UK Time (12pm GMT)

Gender Equality is a central component of any humanitarian to development response. In the context of COVID-19 this is also the case. Women and Men, Boys and Girls are all affected by COVID-19. Much of the commentary so far indicates that women are more affected by COVID-19 in terms of high numbers of cases and serious secondary consequences around domestic violence for example. However, men seem more prone to severe episodes of the disease (perhaps related to diet and smoking) and more likely to die than women. Men also work in sectors of the economy, transport and construction for example, that might put them at a high risk.

This discussion will put a specific focus on men, the impact of Covid 19 on them directly and indirectly. It will also explore how well the response is addressing the particular needs of men.
