Launch of children and COVID-19 research library
Date: 19th November 2020
Category: COVID-19, Mental health, Child poverty, Social security and childcare, Health and health services, Education, including vocational education
The library contains global scientific research and evidence on children and the coronavirus pandemic, building upon UNCEF Innocenti’s existing COVID-19 rapid research response microsite.
The library aims to fill the knowledge gap on the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 drawing upon publications, blogs, expert webinars and other scientific resources.
Key topics of the database include child poverty, education, mental health, social protection and child well-being. The database is searchable by title, journal and author and allows users to filter by topic, type of research, country, language, institution, journal title, keywords and date range.
As the library is still under development, there is an opportunity to offer preliminary feedback to help refine the database content and usability.
