One person in three in the world lives in poverty. Oxfam is determined to change that world by mobilizing the power of people against poverty.


For the past 2 years, the world has been faced with a global health pandemic that has caused major economic and social disruptions worldwide, impacting governments and communities at every level. This impact has been felt across the African continent, and many of these disruptions have had gendered impacts, due to the differential position and gaps of men and women in the socio-economic sector, as well as in domestic and care work.
As the COVID-19 virus spread in Africa, there is a growing fear that the impact on lives and livelihoods, especially of those in situations of vulnerability and on women for their different insertion in the labour market and differential roles, could be severe and may take years to recover. Time poverty of women in situations of vulnerability tend equally to be seriously affected in times of pandemics and specially in contexts of fragility, due to lack of social services to distribute care and domestic work, and traditional expectations of women to be carers in their family groups. Specific groups of women such as single mothers are especially hit by such events
African countries have struggled with vaccine apartheid with only 12% of the population fully vaccinated, the lowest COVID-19 vaccination rate in the world, the main issue remains the absence of global solidarity where the rich countries hoard at the expense of weaker economies. This is putting millions at risk of infection, constraining economic productivity, and jeopardising socioeconomic progress. African governments have responded quickly to contain the spread of the virus, but success is overshadowed by the pandemic’s socioeconomic consequences. Even in the best of scenarios, the economic, social and gender impact has been massive and the consequences for vulnerable groups severe.
