A Gender-Transformative Response to COVID-19 in Myanmar
On 27 April, the Myanmar Government published the COVID-19 Economic Relief Plan (CERP)
which aims to mitigate COVID-19’s impact on the macroeconomic environment and the private
sector and to ease the impact on laborers, workers, and households. The CERP action plan
should pay explicit attention to gender discrepancies to avoid unintentional harm or
aggravating existing gender inequalities.
