On 5 April 2020, UN Secretary-General António Guterres highlighted a “horrifying global surge in domestic violence” since Governments around the world had begun imposing lockdowns, quarantines and movement restrictions in order to control the spread of COVID-19. In his remarks, the Secretary General noted that in some countries calls to gender-based violence (GBV) support services had doubled.1 Similarly, a plethora of reports from around the world have signaled an increase in reported cases of gender-based violence – particularly intimate partner violence – since the beginning of the pandemic. However, in some places, the service provision statistics actually show the opposite – that fewer GBV survivors are reaching out for support from service providers as compared to the levels seen prior to COVID-19.
UNICEF in Argentina carried out the
Second Round of the Rapid Assessment as part of its Response Plan to
COVID-19 in order to acquaint itself with the perceptions, habits,
attitudes and changes caused by the pandemic among the population. The
survey also investigates its economic and social effects on households
with children and the implementation of the social
protection system, as well as the implications of the pandemic and
various response measures related to social and emotional wellbeing,
focusing on early childhood and adolescence.

Many of the measures taken by countries to contain the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in disruptions to child protection services. Despite this, many countries have worked to ensure that child helplines remain operational, making such mechanisms even more critical for reporting and referring cases of violence and for providing support to victims. The purpose of this paper is to document what has occurred, and been reported, to child helplines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
