Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG) – consultation open until 26 March 2021

Views are sought to help inform the development of the government’s next Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy. This call for evidence has been reopened to reflect the recent public discussion about Violence Against Women and Girls to provide an additional opportunity to feed into the consultation.

Covid-Status Certification Review – consultation open until 29 March 2021

The government is reviewing whether Covid status certification could play a role in reopening our economy, reducing restrictions on social contact and improving safety. Covid-status certification refers to the use of testing or vaccination data to confirm in different settings that individuals have a lower risk of getting sick with or transmitting Covid-19 to others. Such certification would be available both to vaccinated people and to unvaccinated people who have been tested. The government will assess to what extent certification would be effective in reducing risk, and its potential uses in enabling access to settings or relaxing Covid-secure mitigations. The government is looking to consider the ethical, equalities, privacy, legal and operational aspects of a potential certification scheme, and what limits, if any, should be placed on organisations using certification.

Women’s Health Strategy – consultation open until 30 May 2021
