This synthesis paper explores how the unique contexts in Ghana and Burkina Faso produce a different set of actors and responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, the paper explores whether these differences impact on the inclusivity of the responses. The authors use a feminist intersectionality lens that acknowledges the existence of multiple markers of difference as well as vulnerability to unpack the multi- dimensional effects of Covid-19 responses on citizens in Burkina Faso and Ghana. Gender is a key starting point for the analysis of marginalisation, but not the only frame of reference.
