Efforts are being made to build the resilience of marginalised populations, particularly women, against the negative impacts of Covid-19. A press release said that the launching ceremony of “Gov-HER-Nance Initiative: Ensuring Gender Equity and Socio-Economic Resilience during Covid-19 in Pakistan” was organised at a hotel in Peshawar.

The Accountability Lab is implementing the project in selected districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in collaboration with the Health Department.

The project aims to strengthen the resilience of marginalised populations against the negative impacts of Covid-19 and future pandemics.
