Since I have been working in the field of child protection since 2017, I did not expect that in 2020 some non-profit non-governmental organizations that work in the field of child protection will be closed?
Is there a plan for 2021 to rehabilitate local non-governmental and not-for-profit institutions working in the field of child protection from an operational and technical point of view?
Because stopping it will bring disaster to society in my country, Yemen, and in the world as well, due to conflicts and wars, and most importantly, the Corona 19 pandemic

Dear colleagues,

I hope you are all good and having a good week.


I am reaching out as we are starting the revision process of the "MOOC Protecting Children During COVID-19" (https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/protecting-children-during-covid-19).
We would like to do so with inputs from colleagues from country programmes ideally, from the CP sector and others as well (obviously in particular education, GP and health)
- primarily because the MOOC is meant to target them at first!

I wanted to ask you if you could potentially be interested to support us with this process,
or if within your network, agency, organisation or teams you could identify some key people that could be willing to take the course (or a part of it) and provide feedback to us using the attached feedback form?

Due to the different topics this MOOC is touching upon (Safeguarding, Justice, Alternative Care, MHPSS...), feedback doesn't need to be extensive, nor complete - you could for instance target a specific topic (i.e justice) if you have a technical profile.
The course is free and you get a certificate upon completion!

Just FYI, we're targeting a second (revised) iteration of the MOOC for the beginning of 2021 (Feb, approximately), before launching translations to Spanish.

Happy to discuss this further if you need clarifications,
Do not hesitate to reach me out at: facilitation@...

Best regards,

Marion

Job Description: Emergency Protection in Outbreaks Specialist

 

The global community is seeing protection-related impacts play out in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which began in December 2019. Vulnerable populations face compounding risks that will place them at higher risk of violence, abuse, neglect and hinder their access to safe coping strategies and recovery. Previous health outbreaks, as well as COVID-19, have demonstrated repeatedly that disease does not impact all populations equally. The characteristics of certain pathogens, the physical environment, the sociocultural context, or some combination thereof means that women and children, in particular, are often more vulnerable to infection, have more limited access to information and services, and therefore face greater risk of negative outcomes. When not addressed, the long-term impacts of disease outbreak also lead to increased risk of exploitation and abuse, and setbacks in children’s development, women’s economic empowerment, and violence prevention efforts.

 

Deliberately designed, evidence-based integrated health and protection outbreak responses are more impactful than stand-alone health interventions, as they mitigate barriers and risks during response and prevention of the disease and sociocultural impacts in concert. However, there exists a palpable gap in detailed and clear guidance for outbreak responders to design integrated health and protection programming that address both health and protection needs and considerations simultaneously. As such, this project aims to equip frontline protection and health service providers with tools and guidance on how to best serve women, children and other marginalized groups during an outbreak. To address this, the IRC will lead the co-design and validation of an Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit.

 

One component of this Toolkit that this role is responsible for is the Protection in Outbreak Response Resource Package which aims to address the major gap in existing humanitarian guidance and action that would assist health and protection specialists to design integrated programming and community engagement strategies during an outbreak, as this resource will address three different types of outbreaks. The project’s approach to this gap is to develop and thoughtfully promote a series of cross-sectoral methods and resources, based on analysis of past outbreak responses, learning from peer agencies, and an after-action review of the IRC’s North Kivu Ebola response, where both health and protection teams have been responding to the Ebola outbreak since 2018 and any relevant learning from the COVID-19 response efforts.

 

This project will be carried out in consultation with multiple stakeholders and peer organizations to ensure that diverse lessons learned, and perspectives and experiences inform the Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit. The co-design and interagency validation process will help ensure that multiple agencies and coordination bodies are engaged with the final resources. The Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit will increase outbreak responders’ access to easy-to-use, adaptable, and comprehensive tools to integrate health and protection programming and plan community engagement strategies, as well as their confidence in their ability to carry out such programming.

 

The Emergency Protection in Outbreaks Specialist will coordinate input from multiple stakeholders on the Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit and lead on content development and organization for the Protection in Outbreak Response Resource Package specifically.

 

Major Responsibilities

 

Technical (estimated 70% of time):

·         Facilitate a remote after-action review and peer consultations through interviews and desk reviews to evaluate existing guidance on emergency protection, health, and outbreak responses and lessons learned briefings from current COVID-19 response and previous outbreak responses by IRC staff and peer organizations.

·         Organize and facilitate a two-day co-design workshop,  during which stakeholders will agree upon objectives, learning outcomes for the Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit, and common terminology.

·         Support two field visits with field practitioners to review and validate specific components of the Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit.  Provide either in-person field visits or support to alternative staff member conducting field-based activities. This will depend on COVID travel restrictions and other pandemic-related constraints.

·         Develop cross-sectoral guidance on increasing access to essential services, scaling IPC measures, and building trust and two-way dialogue with communities during outbreak. The guidance, drawing on existing materials developed through READY and other RCCE initiatives, will provide outbreak responders tools to understand power dynamics, social cultural structures, influence, needs, coping mechanisms and risks and capacities.

·         Work with designer to finalize a user-friendly Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit.

·         Organize and deliver a Preparedness Workshop which will train and orient at least 20 frontline responders from leading health and protection agencies on the Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit in outbreak response.

·         Host a series of webinars, targeting at least 10 peer organizations, with invitations to members of the global Health Cluster, the GBV and Child Protection Areas of Responsibility, the MHPSS Reference Group, and other global consortia to socialize and launch this new resource and promote multi-sector coordination in outbreaks.

 

Coordination (estimated 20% of time):

·         Coordinate key protection and health response actors as an advisory group throughout the duration of the project. Including scheduling, preparing, chairing and documenting meetings and action points.

·         Facilitate the work of the IRC protection and health teams, including development of clear deliverables and work plans, thereby ensuring cohesion across the health and protection components of the Integrated Health and Protection Toolkit.

·         Learn from implementation of existing outbreak response resource packages and documented learning, including resources and guidance on risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) through READY and other global coordination forums and RCCE initiatives.

·         Support advocacy efforts and promote dialogue amongst key donors and decision makers around the importance of integrated protection and health programming in outbreaks.

·         Coordinate and collaborate with relevant IRC sectors, especially the health and violence prevention and response units (child protection, women’s protection in empowerment and protection) in emergencies.

 

Grant Management/Reporting & Business Development (estimated 10% of time):

·         Lead implementation and ensure adherence to grant work plans, spending plans and monitoring and evaluation plans.

·         Work closely and coordinate with IRC operations, finance and grant staff to ensure timely and compliant program activities and expenditures.

·         Ensure high-quality IRC and donor reports on activities, indicators and achievements.

 

Qualifications:

·         Possess, and applies a sound understanding of child protection, and GBV in emergencies as well as a strong understanding of access to health services and inclusions of harder to reach populations - through 3-6 years of work experience.

·         Direct experience implementing programming during different types of outbreaks within the past 5 years.

·         Strong, dynamic facilitation skills and understanding of adult learning techniques.

·         Strong writing skills, with a demonstrated ability to translate complex ideas into clear, accessible tools and products.

Still Unprotected - Humanitarian Funding for Child Protection: report and launch #Advocacy #childprotection #covid19response

Perrine Corcuff
 

Hi everyone,

sharing for those who may not have come accross it yet the "Still unprotected" report, exploring the topic of humanitarian funding for Child Protection. 

In 2019, the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, Save the Children and the Child Protection Area of Responsibility published “Unprotected”, a report exposing shortfalls in humanitarian funding for child protection. With the global COVID-19 pandemic exacerbating risks to children’s protection it has become imperative to get an updated picture of state of child protection funding in humanitarian contexts, based on the latest data, including initial funding within COVID-responses. 
This new report incorporates 2019 and 2020 funding, as well as additional funding streams related to refugee context and to COVID-19. 

The report is available here and you'll find the recording of the launch that took place at the end of October is here

Warm regards, 

Perrine

Hi Tina,
hope you're doing well in Malaysia!
here are some resources that may be helpful to answer your question:
On disability and inclusion, you can access this CP AoR dropbox folder: Disability and inclusion.
Maybe worth checking this post as well, which will re-direct you to a PHAP webinar on applying the IASC guidelines on the inclusion of persons with disabilities in the COVID-19 response.
More widely don't hesitate to refer to the COVID-19 resource menu, especially part 3 on community engagement and risk mitigation messaging for CP and COVID-19.
Don't hesitate to let us know whether that responds to your needs or if you'd need any additional SOPs or guidelines.
Other members are also welcome to provide some additional thoughts and to share relevant documents.
Warm regards,
Perrine

Guidance for Alternative Care Provision During COVID-19 #AlternativeCare #prevention #covid19response

Perrine Corcuff
 

Dear all,

sharing here a new resource which may be a useful guidance for members of this group: 

The Guidance for Alternative Care Provision During COVID-19 provides practical guidance to actors in humanitarian and development contexts on the adaptations and considerations needed to support children who are either currently in alternative care or are going into an alternative care placement during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It expands on the guidance provided in the Interagency Technical Note on Children and Alternative Care Immediate Response Measures and should be read alongside the Technical Note: Adaptation of Child Protection Case Management to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

This guidance provides:

  • Key principles and adaptations needed to prevent family separation and facilitate decision making about care placements.
  • Key considerations for each type of alternative care placement, including system-level responses and individual child-level responses. 

As usual, don't hesitate to share beyond with other CP practitioners and colleagues. 

Warm regards,

Perrine

Perrine Corcuff
 

Hi everyone,

sharing this new UNICEF document, drafted in collaboration with WHO. 
“Children, Isolation and Quarantine: Preventing Family Separation and Other Child Protection Considerations during the COVID-19 Pandemic”  aims at assisting Child Protection and Health actors to preserve family unity as the pandemic continues, in line with recommended infection prevention and control measures for the COVID-19 disease and will support advocating for protective actions, develop SOPs between CP and health actors, and advise or assist with the setup of isolation and quarantine centres.

This guidance explores in detail:
Quarantine and isolation measures and their impacts on family separation (A), Recommendations to Prevent Family Separation (B), Key Child Protection Considerations to Promote or Restore Family Unity (C), Preparatory Actions to Prevent and Respond to Family Separation (D), Actions to Promote Family Unity if a Child is Admitted to a Facility (E), Actions to Promote Family Unity if a Primary Caregiver is be Admitted to a Facility (F), Procedures in Quarantine and Isolation Facilities (G) and ends with recommended resources (H).

UNICEF Child Protection Learning Brief Series: Responding to the mental health and psychosocial impact of COVID-19 on children and families #MHPSS

Bethany Plummer
 

From now until the end of the year, a series of learning briefs will be published by UNICEF covering various areas of COVID-19 Child Protection response. 

 

They will extract, synthesise and analyse learning on child protection risks and programme adaptation in the COVID-19 pandemic and will contribute to improving policy, advocacy and programme results during infectious disease outbreaks.  

 

The second of the UNICEF Child Protection Learning Brief Series, Responding to the mental health and psychosocial impact of COVID-19 on children and families has been prepared for UNICEF country offices and practitioners as they respond to mental health and psychosocial impact during the pandemic. This real-time emergent learning brief draws on evidence from current country experiences and identifies emerging mental health risks; highlights programme responses and adaptations; and outlines key points for programming, advocacy and systems change.   UNICEF and its partners are adapting and responding to mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) during COVID-19 in different ways, depending on whether a country is under lockdown, the intensity of the lockdown, access to internet-enabled mobile technology, government support for MHPSS services, the capacity of systems and staff members, etc. 


Drawing on
UNICEF’s ‘COVID-19 Operational Guidance for Implementation and Adaptation of MHPSS Activities for Children, Adolescents, and Families,’, the learning brief looks at five strategies for implementing and adapting MHPSS in the context of COVID-19, each strategy highlighting evidence-informed practices from the field. It concludes by offering some key lessons learned and making the case for a sustained multi-sectoral response.

UNICEF GBViE Podcast Episode 16: Making the Invisible Visible: working with unaccompanied and separated girls in Europe

 

To mark the International Day of the Girl on October 11th, this episode highlights how migration of adolescent girls increases their vulnerability towards GBV. Migration routes are notoriously dangerous for adolescent girls. Many are fleeing violence and abuse or are trafficked, which only increases their vulnerability to violence and exploitation. They face specific risks related to gender-based violence before, during and after migration. Leaving home may not be the escape they hoped for, as they continue to be at risk in countries of transit and arrival when they arrive in Europe. To shed a light on the situation of girls, UNICEF published Analysis on unaccompanied and separated girls titled “Making the Invisible Visible: the identification of unaccompanied and separated girls in Bulgaria, Greece, Italy and Serbia”. This report highlights how lack of understanding on gender dynamics and needs, and appropriate identification and support systems is making girls ‘invisible’ and thus, hindering their access to rights and services, and leaving them at further risk of abuse, exploitation and violence.
