COVID-19: How We’re Responding

What You Can Do

Together, we can engender change, hope, and opportunity for women and girls in the world's poorest communities.

Hugo Hoogenboom, a leader of EngenderHealth from 1981-1995, has passed away. We honor Hugo’s legacy by continuing to work for a world in which everyone has access to the info & services needed to make their own reproductive health choices.

Why are sexual and reproductive health services not 'essential services' during the Corona virus pandemic? Covid 19 responses must include women's reproductive health needs. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)31679-2/fulltext

Accessing #familyplanning services is critical in #COVID19 response!

A6) We must value ALL the work women do. The EquityTool by @Metrics4mgmt can be included as part of routine data collection on #COVID19 response; we must also measure the proportion of women out of paid workforce, the dependency ratio & educational status. #GenderData #DevexFOCUS https://twitter.com/devex/status/1288451736332574721

A3) Collecting #VAW data amid #COVID19 is difficult due to risk to women seeking help; lockdowns hindering movement to safe spaces; gaps in training for service providers; & ongoing gaps in data systems. We must address #VAW and #GBV despite the pandemic. #GenderData #DevexFocus https://twitter.com/devex/status/1288447944916639746

A5) National stats offices should ensure that collected data is not only gender disaggregated but also informed by age disaggregation & they should capture how national governments' #COVID19 response efforts are benefiting women & other vulnerable groups. #GenderData #DevexFocus

A4) The EquityTool developed by @Metrics4mgmt provides important estimates of wealth quintiles, while the Washington Group Short Set of Disability Questions provides an opportunity to assess the extent to which #COVID19 is affecting those w/ disabilities. #GenderData #DevexFocus

  • Planning your legacy- Consider including EngenderHealth in your estate plans to have a lasting impact on our work for years to come.
  • Making a qualified charitable gift from your IRA- If you are 70½ or older, an IRA charitable rollover is a way you can help continue our work and enjoy tax benefits from an IRA charitable rollover gift. Contact your IRA plan administrator to make the gift.
  • Donating through a donor advised fund- If you own a donor advised fund, you can recommend a gift to support our mission by contacting your fund manager. He or she will send a check directly from your fund to EngenderHealth. Be sure to have the fund manager inform us of your name and address so that we can thank you for your generosity.
