This Guidance Note aims to provide humanitarian child protection practitioners, particularly child protection advisors and program managers, with guidance on how to engage in responses to infectious disease outbreaks to ensure children’s protection needs are taken into account in preparedness for, and during responses to, the out-breaks. The Guidance Note draws upon lessons learned during infectious disease outbreaks globally in a variety of contexts.

This resource is part of a Collection of similar guidelines entitled "Covid-19:Schools", and part of the "COVID-19: Child Health, Safety and Protection". Both are included in the series of Collections supporting response to Covid-19.
