Our Response: At the Nexus of Human Rights, Women, LGBTIQ, and Health in the COVID-19 Humanitarian Response 

Sexual and gender minorities are already experiencing various levels of oppression and discrimination and these are further exacerbated during the CoVid-19 pandemic. This document provides some of the salient points from the dialogue organised by Youth Voices Count (YVC), the United Nations Major Group on Children and Youth (UN MGCY), Asian Youth Peace Network (AYPN), Asia Pacific Regional CSO Engagement Mechanism, and the Medical Students Association of India (MSAI) with the support of speakers from ILGA Asia, Asian-Pacific Resource & Research Centre for Women (ARROW), and KABATAAN Partylist last April 24, 2020. As governments continue to take urgent and aggressive actions to curb the spread of the virus and support the immediate needs of communities impacted by the lockdowns, this document also provides key recommendations highlighted during the dialogue.
