Female political leaders have led by example, taking key decisions on a daily basis on how best to handle testing, which is today’s first line of defence against COVID-19. By taking informed decisions accounting for both health and economic considerations, these leaders have enabled their countries to re-open their economies, education systems and public life. Not to forget are female frontline workers and community practitioners who put their lives at risk to save our lives.
