COVID-19 Response


The purpose of this document is to provide investment makers at the foundation with a quick guide to integrating a gender lens in our response to COVID-19. This document was prepared by the Stanford University Global Center for Gender Equality in partnership with the Gender Equality COVID Response Workstream. It summarizes overarching gender issues as well as specific issues that relate to the four key components of the foundation’s COVID response, along with key actions to be included in investments across our COVID workstreams. While it was developed with Gates Foundation employees working on COVID-19 response in mind, the four key components of the foundation’s COVID response and the gender integration opportunities therein are applicable to all those working in global health and development.
