Policy Brief: COVID-19 & Urgent Need for Child-Sensitive Social Protection

World Vision

COVID-19 and the indirect impacts of government response measures threaten the immediate and long-term well-being of children, particularly those most vulnerable. In order to reach the most vulnerable, it is critical that all stakeholders collaborate to deliver child-sensitive social protection.

Based on World Vision's extensive experience working with children and families in crisis, this policy brief outlines recommendations to stakeholders, such as governments, UN agencies, NGOs, and donors, and calls for the use of child-sensitive social protection in these stakeholder’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
