Gender Analysis of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Iraq: Conducted in Kirkuk, Diyala and Sulaimaniyah Governorates

In Iraq, as elsewhere, the coronavirus pandemic is having severe impacts on the population, but women and men are affected in different ways. This gender analysis shows that women in three sample areas of the country are facing an increase in the burden of domestic work and caring responsibilities, a heightened risk of GBV and particularly domestic violence, and greater loss of economic livelihoods difficulties in accessing health and support services, due to restrictions on movement and constrictive social norms, have limited decision-making power, and lack information on coronavirus itself, which should help keep them safe.
