COVID-19 is quickly changing the context in which children live. Prevention and control measures such as school closures (as announced or implemented in 100 countries) disrupt children’s routine and support structures. This can leave children vulnerable to child protection harms. As a response, the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action hosted a webinar on 24 March 2020 to introduce our new Technical Note: Protection of Children during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Topics covered include:
- Technical note (what can CP actors do)
- Updates on the current response
- Q&A with a panel
