COVID19 has had a disproportionate impact on women globally and women, particularly those living in disadvantaged communities have been hit the hardest. Often women in these communities lack access to sanitation, access to masks for prevention and access to information. AWHPI has mobilised support to secure a large quantity of masks that have been distributed to the communities most in need starting with Nigeria and will continue throughout the pandemic to offer its support to address sanitation, access to information and distribution of masks that can prevent the spread of the infection.
