Pandemic has reversed progress for children worldwide

School closures caused by the coronavirus have affected 247 million children around the world, setting back progress toward education goals and increasing the threats of abuse, depression, child marriage, poverty and hunger, UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said as the world marked the first year since the World Health Organization declared a pandemic. The pandemic has also reversed progress made toward ending child labor -- a situation that must be addressed, say United Nations Resident Coordinator in Turkey Alvaro Rodriguez and Numan Ozcan of the International Labour Organization.
