Supporting children's well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic (27 April 2020)
In response to the impact of COVID-19, the partnership between UNICEF and WFP on school health and nutrition is being scaled up. As of 20 April 2020, 1.6 billion learners in 199 countries -representing
91% of the total number of enrolled learners - have been directly affected by school closures. This does not only impact children’s’ ability to learn, but also their access to a range of health, nutrition and
protection services offered in and through schools.
