Covid-19 Equality between women and men

The COVID-19 crisis has drastically changed political and social agendas and priorities and all public policies must be reoriented to respond to these priorities. In this sense, it is essential to take into account the gender perspective, so that the measures adopted in the short, medium and long term are as effective as possible, both for women and men, leaving no one behind, in accordance with the commitment contained in the Basque Country 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

The main international and European bodies and several countries have also expressed the need to incorporate the gender perspective in a comprehensive manner in the response to the pandemic and have published recommendations and documents to this end.
