The United Nations has launched a major humanitarian response plan to mitigate COVID-19's impact on the world's most vulnerable communities. Understanding the human dimension of the tragedy highlights the dire conditions and prospects of people living in places already affected by conflict and crisis. Moreover, it is important to recognize that women and girls are both uniquely impacted and critical to mitigation strategies during this humanitarian crisis.
