Pre-recorded Audio & Transcripts | Protection of Children During Infectious Disease Outbreaks
The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action hosted a global webinar introducing the newly-released Guidance Note: Protection of Children During Infectious Disease Outbreaks (IDOs) and associated briefing paper. These recordings and associated transcipts are from that webinar.
Children are particularly vulnerable during epidemics or pandemics, but inter-agency guidance on how to protect children in these situations has been lacking. This Guidance Note fills that gap and provides a deeper understanding of the factors that put children at risk during IDOs as well as practical steps to mitigate those risks.
