The Child Health Task Force Secretariat is working with subgroup co-chairs on a bi-weekly webinar series on child health and the COVID-19 response. Each webinar focuses on a different aspect of the pandemic response at the global and country level, as well as the challenges faced in continuing essential health services for children.

It is still unknown how long the pandemic will last and what its full impacts may be. The webinar series will adapt in scope and frequency as the response shifts to addressing the aftermath of the pandemic and its effects on child health.
