In this 1st episode of the UNICEF GBViE podcast series, Caroline Masboungi interviews Dorcas Erskine, Senior consultant with UNICEF GBViE team. They talk about how the COVID-19 pandemic affects GBV response services and the capacity of women and girls to reach out for help. As countries across the globe struggle to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, concerns are being raised about the effect of the pandemic on Gender Based Violence (GBV) in all countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Dorcas has also drafted a guidance note on GBV service provision during COVID-19 beyond hotlines and mobile phones.
