ReGHID officially started in February 2020, and had its initial activities directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Preliminary fieldwork activities, initially scheduled for 2020 will be carried out in 2021 to include focus groups with displaced women and girls, photovoice activities and interviews with key actors in health services in Brazil, Mexico and Honduras.
