This Thematic Brief provides information and analysis about the gendered impacts and priorities for responses to COVID-19 in the Pacific. It has been developed by the Support Unit for Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development (Pacific Women), connecting more than 170 gender equality initiatives funded by the Australian Government and implemented by over 160 partners across 14 Pacific Island countries. Pacific Women is one of the largest global commitments to gender equality. It partners with governments, local and international non-government organisations (NGOs), private sector, disabled people’s organisations, coalitions and others to improve the political, economic and social opportunities of Pacific women and to end violence against women and girls. Its emphasis is on partnerships and locally-driven development.
