Highlights

Without urgent action, the disruptions caused by COVID-19 will have lifelong consequences for the safety, well-being and future of children in Indonesia, UNICEF said today in a new position brief outlining the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic and new recommendations to help mitigate their effects.

The position brief, COVID-19 and Children in Indonesia: An Agenda for Action to address Socio-Economic Challenges, finds evidence that the virus is already causing widespread income insecurity for families across the country, many of whom are not covered by social protection programmes which mostly target the extreme poor.
