Background/Context

With the COVID-19 cases increasing and series of waves affecting the populations, now is the time to build data to drive a more evidence-focused and targeted approach to prevention and care. To that end, there are key areas of measurement that are needed.

To generate evidence on the impact of COVID on women and girls, VSO is partnering with Evidence-based Measures of Empowerment for Research on Gender Equality (EMERGE,) University of California San Diego (UCSD). The selected modules aim to collect pieces of evidence on the status of adolescent boys and girls, including those with disabilities and their parents during the COVID-19 lockdown.

The study's sample size in total is 2205 that includes participants from children with disabilities, in-school boys/girls, out of school girls, and their parents. This research will answer the following questions.

  • What specific household decision-making process, freedom of movement, girls’ behaviours and control mechanisms are practised during the COVID-19 lockdown that has affected the agencies of women and girls?
  • What are the families' mechanisms to manage the studies and communication with the schools during the lockdown?
  • What is the status of COVID-19 in the families and what containment efforts are in place to control the spread of COVID-19?
  • What is the status of Menstrual Hygiene, Handwashing, Drinking Water and Sanitation for the girls and women during COVID-19?
