During this global pandemic, be sure to get your facts from reliable sources. UN iLibrary offers the latest reports and policy briefs on COVID-19, bringing together analysis from across the UN system which provides concrete ideas for how to address the consequences and even seize opportunities in the midst of the crisis.

The Impact of COVID-19 on Women
This policy brief focuses on the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the issues affecting women such as economic impacts, health, unpaid care work, gender-based violence – exploring how women and girls’ lives are changing in the face of COVID-19, and outlining suggested priority measures to accompany both the immediate response and longer-term recovery efforts.
Responding to the Socio-economic Impacts of COVID-19
This report is a call to action, for the immediate health response required to suppress transmission of the virus to end the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic; and to tackle the many social and economic dimensions of this crisis. It is, above all, a call to focus on people – women, youth, small and medium enterprises, and on vulnerable groups already at risk.
