application/pdfPan-Africa Polcy Paper: COVID-19 Impact on African ChildrenThe comprehensive report underlines that although children do not represent a high-risk group for direct COVID-19 fatality, the pandemic posts a far-reaching secondary impact that heightens risks to the rights and wellbeing of children in Africa. With the rapid spread of COVID-19, this pandemic is overburdening the under-resourced African health systems and disrupting routine health services, jeopardising Africa children’s access to formal learning, health and safety/protection, especially girls and this is unfolding in Africa against a backdrop of worrying hunger levels driven by climate shocks, conflict and economic challenges. 08/06/20202MB
