Children, women and members of the LGBTQ community are at more risk of domestic violence, child abuse, intimate partner abuse, exploitation and other forms of gender-based violence (GBV) during the ECQ and MECQ due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Representatives of government agencies and civil society organizations today shared this observation during the online meeting held by the Committee on Women and Gender Equality chaired by Bukidnon Rep. Malou Acosta-Alba on GBV at the time of this COVID-19 pandemic.
