Children are often the most vulnerable group in major infectious disease outbreaks, either directly from the disease itself or the indirect effects such as disruption to essential services and movement restrictions. With recent Ebola outbreaks in Uganda and DRC and an unprecedented number of cholera outbreaks around the world, there is a growing and urgent need for timely and effective child protection and health collaboration and integration to ensure the needs of children and their families are prioritized during outbreak response.

To strengthen integration and collaboration between child protection and health actors, READY facilitated this three-part inter-agency webinar series. Each webinar took place during the same one-hour period (15:30-16:30 EAT / 7:30-8:30 AM EST/ 12:30-13:30 GMT). The topics and dates of the webinars were:

These webinars are intended for health and child protection actors working within NGOs in East, Central, and Southern Africa, but may also interest actors working in other countries, regions, and agencies. The webinars were presented in English with live interpretation into French and Arabic.

This series was hosted by the READY initiative, led by Save the Children, and funded by the USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance.
