Advocacy Messages for Child Protection Actors: Prioritizing Child Protection in COVID-19 Response Plans

Published by
Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action

Emergency responses to COVID-19 are intended to speed containment of the virus but can have devastating consequences for children if they ignore unique risks to their safety and fail to include specific child protection provisions. Protecting children from violence and exploitation can be life-saving during a humanitarian crisis like COVID-19, and governments should prioritize it as such.

The closure of 51,000 institutions to prevent COVID-19 has left 15 million children out of school and facing increased risk of violence, exploitation and abuse. Closing schools must not mean suspending learning.
