Technical note: protection of children during the coronavirus pandemic, v.1

United Nations Children's Emergency Fund

This briefing provides information to support child protection practitioners to better respond to the risk children face during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

In addition, measures used to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19 can expose children to protection risks. Part 1 of this briefing presents the potential child protection risks COVID-19 can pose to children. Part 2 presents programmatic options in line with the 2019 'Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action' and the 'Guidance Note: Protection of Children During Infectious Disease Outbreaks.'
