Author: The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, READY, Plan International
This Mini-Guide aims to support children’s agency and amplify their voices, ultimately improving the overall quality and effectiveness of subsequent interventions.
This Mini-Guide sets out:
- ‘WHAT’ child participation is;
- ‘WHY’ child participation is important in outbreak settings; and
- Strategies as to ‘HOW’ potential challenges may be overcome.
It also offers practical guidance to ensure that child participation is safe, meaningful and inclusive and that children are consulted at all stages of outbreak management (preparedness, response and recovery).
