2020-2023 Gender Strategy: Protecting children affected by armed conflict in Sub Saharan Africa Programme

Since 2017, Save the Children has affirmed its commitment to advancing gender equality in its work through the adoption of a new Gender Equality Policy. This gender strategy will guide the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of Save the Children’s PCiC programme. It provides a roadmap to operationalising Save the Children’s global Gender Equality Policy. It is premised upon an understanding of the gendered nature of conflict. A Gender Analysis of the impact of armed conflict on children in Sub-Saharan Africa was undertaken to understand how girls, boys, children of diverse SOGIESC and children with disabilities experience the short and long-term implications of conflict. Given the prevailing context, the potential gendered dimensions of the current COVID-19 crisis – particularly in situations of armed conflict – was also investigated.
