Women's voices, knowledge, and leadership at the heart of humanitarian action
Like everywhere in the world, women in Serbia play a key role in responding to the COVID-19 outbreak, including as front-line healthcare workers, carers at home, community leaders and mobilisers. Experience of other disease outbreaks shows that this exposure also increases their risk of infection. As the coronavirus crisis unfolds, UN Women in Serbia is working hard to support different groups of women, ensure their equal voice in decision-making, and analyze the impact of the pandemic on women's lives. This publication aims to showcase the inspiring stories of 13 extraordinary women working tirelessly at the forefront of the coronavirus pandemic.
