Promoting health equity, gender and ethnic equality, and human rights in COVID-19 responses: Key considerations
The COVID‐19 pandemic affects diverse groups of women and men differently. The risks and consequences are disproportionately felt by certain groups, especially those living in situations of vulnerability and those who experience discrimination.

- prevent the expansion of inequalities;
- account for the everyday lived realities of different groups that may affect the success of measures.
