There have been dramatic reductions in child and youth mortality over the last 29 years. Globally, under-five mortality has dropped by 59% since 1990—from 93 deaths per 1,000 live births then to 38 deaths in 2019. Initial evidence suggests that the impact of COVID-19 on direct mortality for children and youth may be small, but indirect effects can be severe. Many life-saving services have already been disrupted by COVID-19.
The homelessness response system in the United States is dominated by
the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD’s
definition of homelessness, program models, metrics, data, approaches,
and goals have overshadowed those of other federal agencies. This policy
brief argues that children, youth, and families experiencing
homelessness have been poorly served by HUD’s dominance, especially
during the COVID-19 pandemic.The paper draws from research, policy analyses, and testimonies of
parents, service providers, and educators to make the case for a
reimagined homelessness response that is child-centered and oriented
toward long-term goals of economic independence, health, and wellness.
This article focuses on the impact of COVID- 19 on food security and nutrition among children in India. India is already one of the highest ranking countries in the world for the number of children suffering from malnutrition and more than one third of the world's malnourished children live in India. The novel coronavirus risks is undermining the efforts of humanitarian and food security organizations to reduce hunger and scale down the efforts in this direction In this paper, I would largely focus on the impact of COVID- 19 on food security and nutrition among children in India.
In response to the unprecedented educational challenges created by
school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 90 per cent of
countries have implemented some form of remote learning policy. This
factsheet estimates the potential reach of digital and
broadcast remote learning responses, finding that at least 463 million
students around the globe remain cut off from education, mainly due to a
lack of remote learning policies or lack of equipment needed for
learning at home. This data primarily stems from the UNESCO-UNICEF-World
Bank Survey on National Education Responses to COVID-19 School Closures
(June-July 2020), as well as household microdata from sources like
Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS), Demographic and Health
