GBV in West Nile stands at 43.4%, compared to the national figure of 39.6%. Various sources have reported a significant increase in cases of SGBV since April 2020 especially attributed to Economic insecurity and poverty -related stress as well as quarantines and social isolation, Economic insecurity and poverty-related stress as well as quarantines and social isolation, Non-operational support services, and trivialization of GBV . COVID-19 has had significant impact on the informal sector of which women make up 85.6%. The reduced earnings that have been exacerbated by the government lockdown have and will continue to significantly the incidence of poverty rates among women who are primary care givers for their families. Women and girls with disability dace even more heightened risk during a pandemic like COVID-19 due to systemic barriers to equality and inclusion, limited visibility in disability and gender equality laws, policies, and practices.

The Aga Khan foundation as part of its strategy seeks to minimise impact of COVID-19 on women and girls with disabilities through initiatives that will build their resilience and enhance their protection and participation within their communities.
