Making your Health Center Child Friendly: Cox’s Bazar

Author: READY

The Making Your Health Center Child Friendly guidance document was developed in March 2022 and provides advice and tips on how health facilities can be designed in ways (i) to avoid unintentional distress to children, (ii) help children cope with stressful situations they are experiencing, and (iii) respond to any child protection concerns that may be disclosed or observed during an infectious disease outbreak. The content is based on the experiences of colleagues addressing the COVID-19 pandemic in the context of the Rohingya Response in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
