Objective: The purpose of this paper is to find out the gender-based disparities in trust in the public health measures taken in Bangladesh during the post-COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: A cross-sectional study design and quantitative research approach were used to collect primary data. A total of 742 students from different socioeconomic backgrounds participated in the survey randomly by filling up a structured questionnaire from 15 June 2022 to 10 July 2022. The Wilks’ λ statistic, MANOVA, and Regression analysis were performed in this study to find out the gender-based differences in trust in the public health measures taken in Bangladesh during the post-COVID-19 pandemic. Results: In a multivariate test, the p-value is 0.018 (p<0.05), which implies a significant difference between the trust of males and females among youths about public health measures during the post-COVID-19 pandemic in Bangladesh. This study provides that overall infrastructure, responsiveness, and attachments have a significant correlation with youth trust as all the p-values < 0.001. Conclusions: Health infrastructure and youths’ attachment to the various networks and institutions have more impact on determining the level of trust in government health measures during the post-pandemic than the way of government responsiveness; policymakers and advocates will get significant insight from the findings of the study during post-COVID-19. Without gender-sensitive health policy measures, gaining citizens’ trust in the government will be difficult.
