GPC COVID-19 Protection Advocacy Messages : Engaging with national and local authorities

This note is intended to guide country-level protection advocacy with national and local authorities in the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic. In developing this note, the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) has reviewed and extracted protection advocacy messages from critical online resources developed by UN agencies, international NGOs and global/regional initiatives for prevention, preparedness and response related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This advisory note is a living document that will be updated regularly with the development of the COVID-10 operational context, drawing upon the expertise of the global protection community. Key messages can be adapted to diverse audiences.
