COVID-19 is a public health emergency with immediate and long-term economic impacts which risk devastating effects on children and families. Strengthening social protection responses are essential to mitigate these impacts. UNICEF works with governments and other partners in over 100 countries to help strengthen social protection systems, including to respond to both short term and protracted crises.
