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.

As the pandemic continues to spread across the globe, we are seeing concerning trends that reporting of sex-disaggregated data is declining and that countries are failing to integrate gender, equity and human rights into their COVID-19 health policies. We invite you to join the essential call for a consideration of both sex and gender in the pandemic response. Here you can find a selection of infographics available to download, use, share and help spread the word that this data matters.
