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

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. Effective COVID-19 response plans must adequately fund and resource measures to ensure children’s safety and well-being.
