COVID-19: The gendered impacts of the outbreak

To fully understand the primary and secondary effects of a health crisis on individuals and communities, it is vital to recognise how such a crisis affects women and men separately. A proper understanding of the gendered impacts of a pandemic can inform the creation and proper implementation of effective, equitable policies and interventions that will help mitiate risk during health emergencies.

This article presents insights on the gendered impacts of COVID-19 and discusses whether high-performing health systems are resilient against the pandemic.
