To mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on children and their caregivers, authors advocate for full financing and operationalization of service provision that transcends COVID-19 barriers and addresses health, social and child protection, economic protection, and child development. Recommended strategies include providing cash transfers and essential supplies to vulnerable households, strengthening community-based platforms for nurturing care, and conducting research on the social, mental, and physical health consequences of the pandemic.
