Yemen Protection Cluster: Covid-19 Preparedness and Response: Protection of Groups at Disproportionate Risk

As part of Covid-19 preparedness and response efforts, Protection actors should engage in an exercise of analyzing current and potential protection issues to identify groups at disproportionate protection risk. It is essential at this stage, and in light of shifting dynamics, to avoid recycling predefined categories and vulnerabilities. Individuals at risk should be identified as a result of a thorough and ongoing protection risk analysis against an incessantly changing context. It is also worth noting that groups at disproportionate risk in relation to protection are not necessarily the same as high-risk groups from a health perspective.
