  • Abstract
    COVID-19 is a new public health emergency which to date does not have specific vaccines or medicine to control the disease. In order to slow the spread of the disease many countries across the world have imposed strict lockdowns. Research shows that domestic violence against women has increased drastically across the world, in a short period of time. The paper provides an insight into past pandemics and exposes underlying gender roles and gender inequalities that lead to increased domestic violence. This paper further depicts how increased domestic violence across the world is often overlooked as the entire attention of the key authorities is focused on curbing the public health crisis. The paper provides evidence to the government and policymakers about the horrifying rise in domestic violence and proposes recommendations including strengthening community involvement, allocation of additional resources, training of frontline workers, and building capacity of key services by intensifying response and preparedness. Imposing lockdown and restricting movement is an essential strategy to control the spread of COVID-19, however, the authorities need to understand the significance of addressing domestic violence and taking immediate public health measures. We have an opportunity to learn from previous lessons and do things right this time by involving women in the decision-making processes and incorporating comprehensive responses that cater to the needs of the most vulnerable groups.
