ActionAid's COVID-19 Response

From ActionAid’s experience working with women on the frontlines of crisis, we know that global health emergencies like this one, will not be gender neutral. ActionAid is already mobilising to support women to respond to the COVID crisis. The Arise Fund was established to scale up the support of women globally leading emergency response.

Women make up 70% of those living in poverty and face injustices on a daily basis.

We're working with movements of women around the world to achieve:

1 Economic Justice for Women

We work in solidarity with women living in poverty and exclusion for just economic policies and a more equitable redistribution of resources.

2 Women's Rights in Emergencies

We are fighting for a world where women are resilient in the face of increasing humanitarian crises and leading preparedness, response and recovery efforts to secure their rights in emergencies.

3 Climate Justice for Women

We resource women to raise their voices for alternative policies and systems that promote resilience and climate justice, and reduce the worst impacts of climate change.

Together we've supported 500,000 women and their communities across 45 countries to achieve positive change and access to their human rights.
