The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the face of the world as we knew it. The lives of whole societies were put on hold, almost all works halted in order to focus on challenging one of the biggest global health crises in almost a century…. As ASTRA Network, we believe in experience-based policymaking. In this brochure, we will therefore be taking a closer look at some Eastern European countries and the state of SRHR amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, as only understanding the context will allow us to prepare the best solutions for challenges of the post-pandemic era.

This publication contains reports from Albania, Armenia, Georgia, Poland and Romania, and ends with five recommendations, including recognising human rights-based policymaking as the key to rebuilding the world after Covid-19, investing in telemedicine, and strengthening social support systems.
