While there has been a global rush to generate rapid evidence on COVID-19 mental health impacts among adults, limited evidence exists on the potential impacts on children.
This is the protocol for our rapid review that seeks to (i) understand the immediate impact of COVID-19’s first wave on the mental health of children and adolescents (0–19 years); and (ii) apply lessons learned from this pandemic to mitigate the impacts of future health crises.
The key research questions of this review are:

in the Sylhet division, in the Northeast of Bangladesh, face complex challenges
in accessing quality education, at all school levels. The region ranks among
the poorest performers in learning attainment across education levels. UNICEF
Bangladesh and its partners have leveraged resources from the Let Us Learn
(LUL) initiative to deliver three alternative learning pathways for
out-of-school children and adolescents in remote areas of Sylhet. The three
pathways cover key transition points in a child’s education: Getting ready to
start school (Pre-Primary Education programme), learning foundational skills (Ability-Based Accelerated Learning
programme) and entering the job market (Alternative Learning Pathway
report presents evidence on the achievements of the three programmes,
highlighting key policy recommendations. The findings draw on analysis of
programme monitoring data, qualitative
case studies, focus group discussions and interviews. This paper is one of a
series of research reports presenting emerging evidence on programmes supported
by the LUL initiative, which aims to expand quality learning opportunities for
disadvantaged children in Afghanistan, Bangladesh,
Liberia, Madagascar and Nepal.

Corona virus pandemic (COVID 19) has emerged as the single most important topical issue and poses a challenge to medicine. Adolescent school children are exposed to a varying degree. The study is aimed to determine the knowledge of the mode of spread and preventive practices among college adolescents attending six secondary schools in Enugu metropolis.
Evidence and objective assessment are needed more than ever
to help enhance the rights and well-being of the world’s children. Researching the changing world around us and evaluating progress are two sides of the same coin, both critical to reimagining a better future for children. In recognition of this,
UNICEF celebrates and showcases innovative and influential research and
evaluations from our offices around the world every year. For 2020, Innocenti and the
Evaluation Office joined forces to find the most rigorous UNICEF studies with
greatest influence on policies and programmes that benefit children.
