Australia has demonstrated a commitment to ensuring that gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls is a focus of Australia’s diplomatic, development and regional security efforts, articulated through the Gender Equality and Empowerment Strategy. The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected women and girls, substantially worsening gender inequality. From the loss of casual and informal work where women are over-represented, to their withdrawal from school, increasing rates of GBV, escalating child marriage, and spiking maternal deaths, women and girls are bearing the brunt of the pandemic.
The SRHR C-Surge Initiative is a two-year program that will be implemented across the Indo Pacific region to accelerate the capacity of service providers and technical specialists to help address urgent unmet need for SRHR services and information, including scaling up innovative platforms developed over 2020 to respond to COVID-19 and rapidly changing operating contexts.
The initiative fund three separate, yet complementary SRHR programs implemented by four agencies – UNFPA, UNICEF, Marie Stopes International (MSI) (with the contract held by Marie Stopes International Australia (MSIA)) and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
