The federal government announced on Sunday that they would be spending $159.5 million to fight coronavirus internationally.
The $159 figure includes a previously mentioned $50 million.
The announcement was made by Minister of International Development Karina Gould.
The funding is also in line with the Trudeau government's stance on the international fight for feminism.
"As the COVID-19 health crisis evolves, Canada recognizes that for people in developing countries—particularly women and chidlren—the pandemic may have significant and lasting negative impacts on their health, prosperity and opportunities," the statement reads.
"Canada's investment in these programs is in line with its feminist international assistance approach, since this global crisis has the potential to exacerbate inequalities and reverse development gains," it continues.
The funding towards women is an approach that the Trudeau Libereals have long used.
In 2017, the government said that Canada would be "adopting a feminist international assistance policy to promote gender equality and empower all women and girls.For Canada, this is the most effective approach to reducing poverty and building a more inclusive, peaceful and prosperous world"
This approach ensured that 95 percent of Canada's overseas funding would be devoted to gender empowerment programs. Most of the funding goes to sub-Saharan African countries.
Access to abortions and contraceptives is also included in most of the funds.
