Tackling the Corona virus and protecting vulnerable children
Apart from its immediate public health impacts, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have wide-reaching economic and social implications for vulnerable groups of population, including children in poverty. The OECD COVID-19 Digital Hub is compiling data, analysis and recommendations on a range of topics to address the emerging health, economic and societal crisis, facilitate co-ordination, and contribute to the necessary global action when confronting this enormous collective challenge. In addition, as a global advocate on child poverty measurement, analysis and response, the Global Coalition to End Child Poverty have opened a COVID-19 and child poverty space to share latest news and updates, high-quality research and knowledge products, tools and resources, webinars and other opportunities with the global community of practice.
Coalition members are working to support global and national efforts to protect the poorest and the most vulnerable families from the health and economic impacts of COVID-19 crisis. Find out how our members and partners are responding to COVID-19.
