The current outbreak of Zika virus in the Dominican Republic is having severe consequences on the lives and health of thousands of people. In order to assess the gender practical and strategic needs of women, girls, boys and men, Oxfam and Doctors of the World conducted a gender analysis in May-October 2016. The analysis seeks to understand the impact of Zika on different population groups, their specific vulnerabilities and needs and their coping mechanisms. The study aims to provide findings and recommendations to support humanitarian agencies to intervene in this health emergency in a gender-responsive way and also to mainstream Zika with a gender perspective into emergency responses caused by natural disasters.
