Children with disabilities and underlying health conditions are especially vulnerable to covid. We are striving to protect them from infection and from further isolation.
- Children with disabilities who are living with serious health conditions are particularly susceptible to infection whether at home or in institutions.
- Children with disabilities or underlying health conditions are at heightened risk of infection in orphanages. Coupled with the danger of severe staff shortages during the pandemic, these children are especially vulnerable.
- We must do all we can to protect them and make sure they are not discriminated against when decisions about the provision of healthcare are made.
