COVID-19: Household Structures, Fertility, and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the Global South

Event

Dear Colleagues,

Please join us for COVID-19: Household Structures, Fertility, and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the Global South, an online Webinar taking place on June 23rd, 2020 from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM (EDT).

COVID-19 has become an unprecedented global crisis. The pandemic and its associated economic crisis have exposed deep structural inequalities around the world, with disproportionate effects on women and girls. This webinar will discuss current issues around COVID-19, household structures, fertility, and SRHR for women in the Global South. A diverse panel of experts from the worlds of international development research and practice will discuss research priorities and possible policy solutions for women in the labour market.

Featuring:

  • Professor Sarah Brauner-Otto (McGill University)
  • Dr. Agnes Quisumbing (International Food Policy Research Institute)
  • Caroline Kwamboka (European Parliamentary Forum for SRHR)
