COVID-19 Global Gender Response Tracker

The COVID-19 Global Gender Response Tracker monitors policy measures enacted by governments worldwide to tackle the COVID-19 crisis, and highlights responses that have integrated a gender lens. It includes national measures that are directly addressing women’s economic and social security, including unpaid care work, the labour market and violence against women. The tracker is coordinated by UNDP with substantive leadership and technical contributions from UN Women. It is co-created by both entities and based on publicly available information, including media coverage, official documents, and other COVID-19 policy trackers. In some cases, information on measures was provided by UNDP and UN Women country offices.



This is currently the beta version of the tracker, containing preliminary findings. Its outcomes may be impacted by a lack of available information and data or underreporting on measures. The expanded version, which will launch in September 2020, will include additional measures. For more information or feedback to improve the tracker, please contact:
