Mini Guide #1 | Child Protection in Outbreaks: Adapting child protection programming in infectious disease outbreaks

The Alliance

This Mini-Guide is designed primarily for child protection practitioners and the social service workforce in settings impacted by infectious disease outbreaks. It provides an overview of why and how to adapt national and community-level child protection interventions during outbreaks.

The focus is on:

  • Case Management
  • Hotlines & Helplines
  • Group Activities 
  • Child Participation 

Because outbreaks can create opportunities to strengthen systems, this Mini-Guide also offers suggestions on how child protection adaptations can lead to better outcomes for children and their caregivers in the long-term.
