COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic. As we continue to navigate this rapidly evolving situation, it is essential to stay informed on the latest news, updates and resources about the virus and its effect on children. As a global partnership, End Violence is here to share the latest evidence, data and information to protect children from COVID-19 and the related risk of violence.
COVID-19 is having both short-term and far-reaching implications for our families, friends and colleagues. It also has an impact on our work, and will affect the achievement of our shared vision of a world without violence against children. As the virus continues to spread across the world, we are all facing multiple new stresses, including physical and psychological health risks, school and business closures, family confinement, isolation and economic vulnerability. Through all of that, children are particularly vulnerable.
To remain up-to-date, please visit the websites of the World Health Organization and UNICEF, where you can find trusted, evidence-based information and materials.
In addition, you will find more materials from our 400+ partners across the world below. Check this page regularly to access a continued stream of resources as the situation evolves, and view and use our social media kit to share messages widely with your audiences. Both of these resources will be updated daily as the situation evolves.
