Joint statement on COVID 19 and Wasting

Joint UNICEF and GNC statement, calling for the inclusion of children affected by wasting, in the list of highly-vulnerable groups, as it they may be at higher risk of COVID-19 related pneumonia. As many countries are developing COVID 19 response policies, strategies and programmes, weighing in the effects on public health and their economies, it is critical that they do not underestimate the potential primary and secondary impact of COVID-19 on the survival of a large number of children.
