25 February 2021, 2.30-4pm GMT

COVID-19 has highlighted once again how social and economic barriers prevent vulnerable children and adolescents from accessing biomedical support essential for their health and well-being. This webinar sees global policy makers, donors and implementers explore together how these barriers can be overcome by combining social protection with biomedical support. It will examine the winning innovations of the Reaching All Children Positive Action Challenge, and discuss what policy changes are required to scale up what works.
