COVID-19 & WOMEN'S HEALTH 

By now we have all heard much about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the importance of social distancing, washing hands, and staying home whenever possible.  While we strive to flatten the curve collectively, the OCWHP thanks and honors our colleagues in healthcare and social services, law enforcement and emergency response, grocery/restaurants and pharmacy, delivery and distribution, education and research, government and infrastructure, and other critical sectors.  

 

We send our warmest wishes of health and wellness to you and your loved ones.  

The OCWHP is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic for gender disparities, as it is anticipated that women will be disproportionately impacted re: caregiving, exposure to violence, sexual and reproductive health, and other areas such as lost earnings. Read more and see COVID-19 resources.
