Since we launched our response six months ago, we have already reached 45 million people, including 19 million children. We are focusing on:
Preventing the spread: Promoting preventive behaviours in communities through social media, text messaging, radio, and other traditional channels. Distributing handwashing supplies, hygiene and cleaning kits, such as soap and clean water.
Strengthening health systems: Including providing health systems and workers with personal protective equipment such as soap, masks, latex gloves, training and equipping some of the global network of community health workers.
Supporting children impacted by Covid-19, through education, child protection and food security: Including cash and voucher distribution; food security assistance; support savings groups, providing mental health and psychosocial support for children and families, helping families to help continue children’s education remotely.
Collaborating and advocating to protect vulnerable children: Including influencing policy changes at global, regional and national levels to improve the international responses to COVID-19, working with faith leaders, the UN and others.
