Gender Samvaad is a joint attempt between DAY NRLM  and IWWAGE to create a common platform for generating greater awareness on NRLM’s interventions across the country and best practices, with a focus on hearing voices from the states and the field. The second Gender Samvaad focused on the challenges posed by the second wave of the pandemic and the extent to which States have been able to respond to these by leveraging the collective potential and solidarity of women’s groups. The dialogue showcased best practices from the states in responding to the emerging needs ranging from access to health and other services, information related to COVID-19, access to food, and opportunities for work. Bihar, Kerala and Meghalaya were the focus states in the webinar, talking about how they have been ensuring food security for communities and access to health information across all age groups.
