Joint Appeal for Effective Response and Mitigation of Impact of COVID-19 on the Children in Bangladesh

While the world is grappling with the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Bangladesh also starts being affected. Joining Forces Bangladesh appreciates the measures taken by the Government of Bangladesh that includes enforcing nationwide sporadic lockdown; economic measures, test and detect services and appealing to patience and obedience of the Bangladeshi people to stay at home in order to contain this pandemic. We also appreciate the tireless effort of medical workers and security personnel who have taken risks while they are committed to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and save the people and the nation from this crisis.

To ensure that the well-being of most vulnerable children are not compromised, on behalf of the children, Joining Force Bangladesh appeals to the Government of Bangladesh, international communities, business sector, media, and civil society to take the measures outlined in this brief.
