Resources on Gender-Based Violence and the COVID-19 Pandemic
Please visit the Learning Network by clicking here to access their webpage which is a centralized hub for resources related to Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and the COVID-19 pandemic. It shares the work of organizations across Canada, as well as key international research.
Recommended public health measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 such as social/physical distancing and the closure of non-essential services may increase exposure to violence (e.g. intimate partner violence, sexual violence, child maltreatment), in addition to changing the landscape of support-seeking.
We hope this hub of resources will contribute to the ongoing work of preventing and responding to GBV during the pandemic by sharing high quality information and innovative strategies to support those experiencing or at risk of experiencing GBV.
