  1. The links between girls’ life skills intervention in emergencies and their return to education post-crisis and prevention of unwanted pregnancies and early marriage

    This rapid review focuses on identifying evidence and lessons learned on the links between life skills interventions in emergency settings and the prevention of unwanted pregnancies and early marriage and return to education post crisis amongst adolescent girls. It seeks to enable learning from past emergencies to inform the design of effective support to adolescent girls throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

  2. Girl-focused life skills interventions at a distance

    This rapid review explores the evidence and lessons learned about engaging girls in life skills interventions at a distance (i.e. through mobile, online, radio or other) both in emergency and nonemergency settings. The purpose of the review is to assist programmes in identifying relevant and effective ways to continue and build girls’ life skills remotely during the widespread school closures and quarantine of the COVID-19 crisis.

  3. Implications of the COVID-19 crisis on girls and young women

    The pandemic is deeply affecting the environment in which girls and all children grow and develop. While children and young people’s health and mortality currently appears less impacted by Covid-19 than older adults, our experience shows that health crises such as this can disproportionately affect girls and all children in a number of ways. Their education will be interrupted, protective structures disrupted, and their families and communities placed under stress by health and economic burdens. …

  4. Going hungry: The impacts of COVID-19 on girls and young women

    On 21 April 2020, the World Food Programme warned that, unless swift action is taken, some 265 million people worldwide, double the numbers from the previous year, face acute food shortages. This, in a world where some 144 million children under 5 years are already malnourished, 47 million of them acutely so. On top of long-running poverty and malnutrition, in 2019, a record 51 million people are estimated to have been driven from their homes by conflict and disasters, just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. …

  5. Considerations for school-related public health measures in the context of COVID-19: Annex to Considerations in adjusting public health and social measures in the context of COVID-19

    In response to COVID-19, countries around the world have implemented several public health and social measures (PHSM), such as movement restrictions, closure of schools and businesses, and international travel restrictions. As the local epidemiology of the disease changes, countries will adjust (i.e. loosen or reinstate) these measures according to the intensity of transmission. WHO has issued guidance on adjusting PHSM while managing the risk of resurgence of cases. …

  6. Stepping up effective school health and nutrition: A partnership for healthy learners and brighter futures

    School health and nutrition is about investing both in schoolchildren and adolescents’ health and well-being and in their learning, with benefits extending to their homes and communities. When children are sick and hungry, they do not learn well. When children do not receive a quality education, they are less likely to be healthy.

  7. Knowledge map: WASH in schools and Coronavirus

    The WASH in Schools Network (UNICEF, GIZ, Save the Children, WATERAID; Emory, LSHTM, among others) has compiled this knowledge map with links to relevant materials about COVID-19 for learners, their families and the education system. The map is intended for the time when schools are closed and in preparation for re-opening of schools. We want to help you navigate through the jungle of information about COVID-19,specifically its relevance for the school community. …

  8. Policy brief: The impact of COVID-19 on children

    Children are not the face of this pandemic. But they risk being among its biggest victims. While they have thankfully been largely spared from the direct health effects of COVID-19 at least to date – the crisis is having a profound effect on their wellbeing. All children, of all ages, and in all countries, are being affected, in particular by the socio-economic impacts and, in some cases, by mitigation measures that may inadvertently do more harm than good. This is a universal crisis and, for some children, the impact will be lifelong. …

  9. Sexuality education in digital spaces in Asia: Insight report

    With a view to better understanding the scope and opportunities concerning CSE in digital spaces, UNESCO commissioned LoveFrankie to conduct a regional mapping of digital sexuality education initiatives, and to highlight ‘out of the box’ digital solutions to expanding young people’s access to good quality, sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health information. …

  10. No chance for Corona: How kids can help beat the virus

    This comic strip provides young people between the ages of 10 and 14 with information about the coronavirus and other preventative hygiene measures.

  11. Health and nutrition during home learning

    Evidence tells us that a range of health and protection risks arise from a global pandemic, school closures and attempted distancing measures. Issues vary across settings, reflecting the nature of the pandemic, other crisis situations present, resourcing, extent of enforced isolation measures, and family or household structure. Families and learners can be supported to take a range of evidence-informed solutions, within their ability, to promote good health and wellbeing, as well as enable a strong transition back to schools when the reopen. …

  14. Prevent a lost learning generation: nine recommendations to policymakers in response to Covid-19

    Ministers of Education face hard choices as they respond to Covid-19. Within the education sector, the main response to this unprecedented crisis has been widespread school closures, with far-reaching ramifications: currently, over 1.4 billion learners (or 82.5% of learners around the world), are now affected, with 156 countries enacting nationwide closures. These closures are clearly necessary. Yet the secondary, indirect impact of such containment and mitigation measures will also be far-reaching.

  15. Coronavirus: Impact on young people with mental health needs

    The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on the lives of people across the United Kingdom, including millions of children and young people.
