As COVID-19 continues to spread across all corners of the globe, it brings with it a knock-on effect of social, economic and health impacts, with great consequence for women and girls. From pregnancy-related deaths and a decline in routine immunisation, to the “shadow pandemic” of gender-based violence, this pandemic threatens to set back decades of progress for gender equality.

  • Professor Glen Mola
    Head of Reproductive Health, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, School of Medicine and Health Sciences at the University of Papua New Guinea
  • Professor Julie Bines
    Founding member of Women in Global Health Australasia;
