Briefs and reports from the Sex, Gender and COVID-19 Project

The Sex, Gender and COVID-19 Project is working to build the world’s largest data-base of sex-disaggregated data on COVID-19. Alongside this, we are investigating what roles sex and gender are playing in the outbreak, building the evidence base of what works to tackle gender disparities in health outcomes, and advocating for effective gender-responsive approaches to COVID-19.

Here you can explore some key resources from the project as it works to advance these goals.

Resources on gender and secondary impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic

The GH5050 data tracker reports on the immediate health impacts of COVID-19 infection. We recognise that there are many other substantial and severe social, economic and structural outcomes associated with COVID-19, and that many of these outcomes will be shaped by gender alongside other social stratifiers and inequalities. We recommend the following resources as a starting place for further information on the gender dimensions of these associated outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic.
