Tracking the situation of children during COVID-19
Institution: *UNICEF
Published: September 2020 UNICEF Publication
This dashboard is based on quarterly updates of recent data collection efforts from UNICEF country offices drawing on best available sources in each country, including administrative data or representative survey data collected in the last 3 months; or where necessary, extrapolations from reliable localized quantitative and/or qualitative reports. Estimates may not accurately represent the full national response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the challenges of traditional data collection efforts during the pandemic, this dashboard offers relevant early indication of impacts on the disruption of essential services.
Levels and trends in child mortality
Institution: *UNICEF
Published: September 2020 UNICEF Publication
The progress in reducing child mortality around the world has been remarkable. Under-five mortality rates have declined by almost 60 per cent since 1990, and as a result millions more children survive to adolescence today than they did three decades ago. The impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, however, threatens years of improvement in child and adolescent survival through the interruption of essential health services. Even before the coronavirus captured the world’s attention, it was clear that if survival targets were to be met, resources and policy would need to be geared towards accelerating progress and not just maintaining it.
UNHCR COVID-19 Operational Portal
Institution: UNHCR - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
Published: August 2020
With COVID-19, the world’s 79.5 million refugees and forcibly displaced people are among the most exposed and vulnerable. For people who fled wars and persecution, the impact on their mostly hand-to-mouth existence and on their hosts has been devastating. This portal provides a live dashboard on the impact of Covid-19 on borders closures, guidance documents and country specific details on their operational pages.
Dashboard on government responses to COVID-19 and the affected populations
Institution: *UNICEF
Published: August 2020 UNICEF Publication
Governments around the world have implemented a number of different measures in response to COVID-19 outbreaks. These include measures that aim to contain the spread of the virus (such as movement restrictions and border closings), measures to mitigate the economic consequences (such as income support), as well as measures related to the health system (such as testing policies and contact tracing). Billions of people are affected by these measures. Although children have been largely spared the direct health effects of COVID-19, the indirect impacts – including enormous socioeconomic challenges – are potentially catastrophic for children. For migrant and displaced children, the effects can be graver still.
Children, HIV and AIDS, how will progress be impacted by COVID-19?
Institution: *UNICEF
Published: July 2020 UNICEF Publication

Coronavirus-related service disruptions threaten to reverse the decade-long progress made for children and pregnant women in the fight against HIV.

Data to inform the COVID-19 response
Institution: *UNICEF
Published: June 2020 UNICEF Publication
Timely, disaggregated, and quality data on the situation of children can help identify where the most vulnerable live so that interventions to counteract the potential adverse effects of COVID-19 can be implemented to reach those most in need. UNICEF’s call to protect children, especially the most marginalized, is essential now more than ever and our global databases can inform that response by painting a picture of children around the world. In the face of this unprecedented crisis, where are children especially vulnerable to physical punishment? Are sufficient hygiene facilities available in schools? And is healthcare accessible for children with acute respiratory symptoms? How will the most vulnerable children, such as those living on the street or in refugee camps fare? Data like these can provide guidance for UNICEF and country programmes so that our efforts to mitigate and overcome the effects of the pandemic can be measured.
Interactive dashboard with up-to-date information on education and COVID-19
Institution: *UNICEF
Published: May 2020
This dashboard shows country-level data  on the impact of COVID-19 on national education systems. The COVID-19 page provides an overview of the impact caused by the current outbreak on different aspects of education and learning.
Handwashing data to inform the COVID-19 response
Institution: *UNICEF
Published: May 2020 UNICEF Publication
Washing hands frequently and properly with soap and water is critical to preventing diseases. Yet the latest global estimates find that 3 billion people lacked soap and water at home, 900 million children lacked soap and water at their school, and 40% of health care facilities were not equipped to practice hand hygiene at points of care. Adequate water, sanitation and hygiene services for households, schools and healthcare facilities are essential to prevent the spread of infectious diseases including COVID-19. The low levels of coverage of these basic services in many parts of the world reflect substantial inequalities between and within countries and contribute to the vulnerability of these populations to the pandemic.
Humanitarian Data Exchange - COVID-19 Pandemic
Institution: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published: April 2020
The Humanitarian Data Exchange COVID-19 crisis page provides an overview of the spread of COVID-19 in locations with a Humanitarian Response Plan in place. It also lists datasets and draws information from various institutions, including IOM, UNHCR, WHO, UNICEF, The World Bank, as well as Oxford and Johns Hopkins Universities.
Understanding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic through data
Institution: The World Bank
Published: April 2020
This site provides an array of real-time data, statistical indicators, and other types of data that are relevant to the coronavirus pandemic, particularly on the economic and social impacts of the pandemic . These data are drawn from the World Bank’s data catalog and other authoritative sources.
WHO Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Dashboard
Institution: WHO - World Health Organization
Published: April 2020
The WHO coronavirus disease (COVID-19) dashboard presents official daily counts of COVID-19 cases and deaths reported by countries, territories and areas. The dashboard provides a frequently updated data visualization, data dissemination and data exploration resource, while linking users to other useful and informative resources. Daily aggregate case and death count data is also available for download as a comma-separated values (CSV) file.

COVID-19 & Children: Rapid Research Response

UNICEF Innocenti is mobilizing a rapid research response in line with UNICEF’s global response to the COVID-19 crisis. The initiatives we’ve begun will provide the broad range of evidence needed to inform our work to scale up rapid assessment, develop urgent mitigating strategies in programming and advocacy, and preparation of interventions to respond to the medium and longer-term consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. The research projects cover a rapid review of evidence, education analysis, and social and economic policies.
