Child Rights Connect webpage dedicated to  COVID-19 responses

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is having a major impact on the lives of children and families. Given the large amount of resources developed by different organizations, at Child Rights Connect we want to help you in your search for information. For this purpose, we have pulled together resources from our members and partners, as well as some relevant press releases and statements on the topic and divided them into different sections. We seek to provide clarity by offering an overview of the responses to the disease by various organizations. We hope this will help civil society and the general public to quickly review information that is of interest. We will be updating the webpage regularly as the crisis unfolds.

Child Rights Connect staff in Geneva is working from home following the Swiss government guidelines. You can reach us via email.
