Last week, we looked at adapting child protection strategies in COVID-19 and other infectious disease outbreaks with the focus on keeping children safe on and offline, group activities for children’s well-being and children deprived of their liberty. This week, we will continue our learning journey on adapting child protection strategies during COVID-19 and other IDO’s with a focus on community level child protection, awareness raising, case management and alternative care. We will hear from practitioners in the field and also reflect on adaptations for our own contexts. Let’s get started.
