While the immediate impacts of COVID-19 are already apparent, some have yet to surface, and many of them will have different effects for different genders. Health systems, schools, and entire economies will continue to present gender-differential consequences for months and years to come as a result of this ongoing crisis.

By applying a gender lens to this pandemic, researchers and policymakers can better assess differential risks and target responses to ensure already-vulnerable populations don’t fall even farther behind. Join the Center for Global Development for this online discussion with experts, researchers, practitioners, and advocates on how a gender lens helps us better understand and respond to the threat of COVID-19.
