April 2020

On April 3, 2020 Alisha Haridasani Gupta published an article in the New York Times about gender discrepancies in Covid-19 data. The article quotes Dyan Mazurana explaining that it would not be very difficult for the U.S. to collect the kind of data needed to determine if the virus impacts men and women differently, however the data collection systems needed to do so are not currently in place. The article also highlighted Dyan’s report on the importance of sex- and age-disaggregated data in humanitarian responses. The article argues that these discrepancies should be informing Covid-19 response and vaccine research. Click here to read “Does Covid-19 Hit Women and Men Differently?
