Considerations for Dignity Kit Distribution during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The following “snapshot” was developed by members of the Regional GBV Working Group for East and Southern Africa based on a request from GBV Sub-cluster Coordinators and Working Group leads at country level. It is highly recommended that organizations distributing dignity kits for the first time review the much more comprehensive Dignity Kit: Guidance Note that was produced by the GBV Sub-cluster in Turkey1. It is important that organizations consult with women’s groups, community leaders and frontline GBV service providers to help identify who is the most vulnerable, what items should be included in the kits and the best place and mode of distribution given WHO’s safety guidelines. The considerations below are specific to the COVID – 19 pandemic.
