COVID-19 & Women’s Health

COVID-19 poses a grave threat to the health, wellbeing, and economic stability of women, girls, and vulnerable populations who may face greater difficultly in protecting themselves from transmission due to lack of information, resources, and access to quality health and social services.

The logistical challenges posed by the pandemic, such as quarantine and self-isolation, are especially acute for women that serve as primary caretakers and/or wage earners for their families.

In response to the pandemic, CAMI Health is compiling a list of available online health services primarily for, but not limited to, women living in the U.S. Also included below are resources and data related to COVID-19 and women’s health.

Women in the U.S. and around the world are grappling with restricted access to essential health services during the COVID-19 pandemic. At CAMI Health, we are committed to helping women find and access the services they need—often via telehealth and other online services. The majority of the services listed here are provided specifically within the U.S.

  • National Domestic Violence Hotline. Advocates at the National Domestic Violence Hotline are available 24/7 at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) in more than 200 languages, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Survivors can also chat with advocates here. In an emergency situation, please call 911.
  • Safe Horizon. Online “SafeChat” service for people impacted by violence, crime, and abuse.
  • Find Help. Provides information to anyone in the U.S. who reaches out with legal questions or concerns regarding domestic violence, sexual violence, and related topics.

Organized by topic area, the resources below include health guidelines, webinars, data trackers, and news headlines, among others. They highlight the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women and provide guidance for collective action to safeguard women’s health.

This is meant to serve as a starting point for those interested and/or working in the field in the U.S. or globally, rather than an exhaustive list. We hope to continue building out this list in the near future. In the meantime, we invite our readers to share additional resources with us at
