Impact of Covid-19 on Access of Vulnerable Children, Families, and Communities to Social Protection in Albania



The present assessment of the socio-economic impact of the Covid crisis focuses on providing input into the social protection system to effectively respond to the Covid-19 pandemic (and future shocks) and mitigate its impact on the most vulnerable families and children. In addition, it acts to generate knowledge on the challenges and gaps in the local level service delivery due to Covid-19, with a particular focus on access to such services for vulnerable groups of men, women, girls, and boys, e.g., the elderly, children, Roma and Egyptians, persons with disabilities, homeless families and individuals, LGBTIs, refugees and asylum-seekers, long-term unemployed, informal and seasonal workers, women victims of gender-based violence and women in the disadvantaged situation including women heads of household, rural women, informal women workers and those engaged in unpaid care work.
