The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the lives of children and their families as health systems buckle, borders close, and schools and businesses shutter. UNICEF remains on the ground in more than 190 countries, with experts across sectors working hard to bring practitioners, front-line responders and policymakers the information they need to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and minimize its impact on children.
