The Impacts of COVID-19 on Children in Mozambique
COVID-19 Policy Note
UNICEF launched a series of policy briefs to highlight the impact of COVID 19 on children in Mozambique. This first note, accompanied by a data sheet, discusses the key areas of concern for the well-being of children in short-, medium-, and long-term if the right actions are not taken. This includes the risks of falling into poverty or aggravation of poverty as well as serious set-backs on development outcomes for children, especially the most vulnerable.
We hope this information will ignite a reflection and constructive dialog at all policy levels and between a broad range of actors to respond to this emergency, recover children’s futures and, to ‘reimagine’ a Mozambique fit for every child after this crisis subsides.
