The GESI Brief and Indicators documents provide useful Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) indicators to help people working in government ministries, private sector, civil society organisations (CSOs) and other agencies to best plan, monitor, analyse and report on COVID-19 response and impacts. The impacts of COVID-19 are experienced differently by women and men. COVID-19 responses and assistance will also benefit women and men differently. Given these differences, to properly monitor the impacts of the COVID-19 response, it is important to use data that is disaggregated by sex, age and abilities. Gender and social analysis is also important.
