UNDP and UN Women have launched the COVID-19 Global Gender Response Tracker that analyses government measures with a gender lens in several areas, including those that tackle violence against women, support unpaid care, and strengthen the economic security of women.

Most of the countries are not doing sufficient to safeguard women from the economic as well as social fallout being caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, as per the data released.

“The COVID-19 crisis provides an opportunity for countries to transform existing economic models towards a renewed social contract that prioritizes social justice and gender equality,” said UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner, adding this new tracker can help boost policy reform by guiding on gaps in national efforts and funding and highlighting best practices.
