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. Launched in September 2020, it includes national measures that address women’s economic and social security, including unpaid care work, the labour market and violence against women. Co-created by both entities, the tracker is coordinated by UNDP with substantive leadership and technical contributions from UN Women. It was updated in March 2021 to include over 3,100 policy measures across 219 countries and territories, as well as new data on women's participation in national COVID-19 task forces, which was compiled with the Gender Inequality Research Lab at the University of Pittsburgh and UN Online Volunteers.
