Article on a longitudinal panel study assessing the impact of COVID-19 in women and men in rural Kenya. The Kenyan government declared a nationwide dusk to dawn curfew in March 2020 that was lifted in large parts later in the year, followed by off-and-on reinstatements of curfews and limitations on mobility largely for the capital region due to COVID-19. Results of the study showed that loss of income due to the pandemic affected more women. More than 65% of households experiences a change in food access with women being more worried about not having enough food.
