ABSTRACT

Rapid Review of Economic Policy and Social Protection Responses to Health and Economic Crises and Their Effects on Children: Lessons for the COVID-19 Pandemic Response   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Purpose: "This rapid review seeks to inform initial and long-term public policy responses to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic by assessing evidence on past economic policy and social protection responses to health and economic crises and their effects on children and families. The review focuses on virus outbreaks/ emergencies, economic crises and natural disasters which, similar to the COVID-19 pandemic, were rapid in onset, had wide-ranging geographical reach, and resulted in disruption of social services and economic sectors without affecting governance systems. Lessons are also drawn from the HIV/AIDS pandemic due to its impact on adult mortality rates and surviving children. The evidence provided by this review is intended for uptake by policy makers and academic researchers."
