JIMENEZ-CARRILLO, Marta; BACIGALUPE, Amaia  and  MARTIN, Unai. Monitoring COVID-19 in Spain: is a gender analysis possible?. Gac Sanit [online]. 2022, vol.36, n.4, pp.384-387.  Epub Dec 19, 2022. ISSN 0213-9111.


To analyse the sex disaggregation and availability of gender indicators in the reports of the National Epidemiological Surveillance Network (RENAVE) and the National Study of Sero-Epidemiology (ENE-COVID-19).


Peer review of indicators available in 72 RENAVE reports and 4 rounds of the ENE-COVID-19 study to calculate the percentage of those disaggregated by sex and their variation over time.


In March 2021, 52.4% of RENAVE indicators were disaggregated by sex. From July 2020, 54% of disaggregated indicators ceased to be published and 23% lost their disaggregation. In the ENE-COVID-19 study, the 1st round 88,23% of the indicators are disaggregated and the 4th round 94,74%. The 2nd and 3rd round do not disaggregated by sex.


The RENAVE reports do not allow for a gender-sensitive analysis while the ENE-COVID-19 study provides the most information on social determinants.

Keywords : Gender perspective; COVID-19; Social determinants.
