In this unprecedented time of COVID-19, it is imperative to maintain rigorous commitment to developing high quality research which advances our knowledge of the disease mechanisms, impact and treatment options. We know that COVID 19 has affected patient populations differently, and work is ongoing to determine the appropriate care pathways for these distinct groups. As we look more closely at each patient population, taking the impact of the disease on women in particular into account is imperative. Not only for female patients who experience disease differently from a biological standpoint, but also for the women on the front lines. Women make up the majority of healthcare workers world-wide, and are often carrying a disproportionate burden of work at home caring for their families. Assuring their protection physically, emotionally, and psychologically is essential. The “Consensus Scientific Statement on Advisory Working Guidelines and Recommendations for Female Population in COVID Era by WINCARs” is therefore a necessary manuscript to assure that the worldwide community of healthcare providers is well equipped with the appropriate knowledge to battle this global pandemic successfully.
