As COVID-19 spreads around the world, one of the key questions confronting governments and the public is – do we have enough food? In many countries, food and beverage (F&B) workers have been designated as essential.

The COVID-19 pandemic is creating a grave global health and economic crisis which affects every single one of us. The IUF wants to ensure that a gender approach to the COVID-19 crisis is adopted by employers, health authorities and governments. A gender responsive approach to the COVID-19 crisis is essential across the whole of society to ensure that gender inequalities are not reproduced, perpetuated or exacerbated in the context of this pandemic. This includes in workplaces, through healthcare provision and research, and in preventing violence towards women and girls.
