    Disability-inclusive Social Protection response to COVID-19 crisis

    09 April 2020

    The COVID-19 pandemic and its related socioeconomic consequences magnify obstacles and inequalities. Persons with disabilities are in many ways more exposed to the crisis. Social protection, which, at any point in time, is critical for persons with disabilities, has proven to be a crucial vector of relief in the recent weeks. This brief presents several elements that can help make the most of the social protection systems response to COVID-19 to support persons with disabilities.

  2. No one left behind, not now, not ever

    Persons with disabilities in the COVID-19 response

    08 April 2020

    The COVID-19 crisis is new. It is requiring us all to act, interact and communicate in different ways than we are used to. However, the social inequalities exacerbating COVID-19’s impact on persons with disabilities are not new. The risk in the response to the current crisis is that persons with disabilities will be left behind once again. The good news is that we already know what works. Fundamentally, we need social justice, effective inclusion, equality of opportunities and decent work.

To date, this partnership created 135 jobs, 20 start-ups and 2 cooperatives—additional small businesses and jobs are in the pipeline in this rural region where the rate of inactive youth is the highest in Moldova (25%).
