All Pacific Regions:
Pacific governments are being encouraged to remember the basic provision of services for children even as Covid-19 takes up time and money. The UN Children’s Agency and UNICEF state a child survival crisis looms in the months ahead, with thousands of children dealing with not only the effects of Covid but also natural climate challenges such as Cyclone Harol. Food insecurity is on the rise with water, sanitation and hygiene services strained leaving children at risk of disease and malnutrition.
