The IDM generates gender-sensitive data about the multidimensional deprivation of individuals. This enables clearer insights into gendered deprivation across 15 key aspects of life.

The IDM team has created a simple one-page resource for policy-makers, women’s rights organisations and others working to plan for & manage COVID-19 risks in Fiji, combining IDM data with stats from the Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre and Diverse Voices (DIVA) for Equality to spotlight potential gendered implications. 

This resource includes key statistics across water, energy, healthcare access and unpaid work to anticipate some of the potential gendered implications of the COVID-19 pandemic in Fiji.
