Education Resources in Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Helping education practitioners in keeping learners and families safe
USAID is actively assisting countries that are affected or at risk by the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19. USAID is working directly with host governments and through organizations responding on the ground to contain and combat the outbreak.
COVID-19 is having a significant impact on education worldwide. USAID is rapidly mobilizing agency-wide to develop a coherent, multi-sector strategy for COVID-19 response. Given COVID-19’s impact on schools and education, the USAID Office of Education is generating and collating reliable resources and evidence-based guidance to help education practitioners keep learners and families safe during this health crisis.
USAID currently has education programming in many developing countries affected, or soon to be affected, by the COVID-19 pandemic. Should these countries order nationwide school and university closures, it would disrupt the education of hundreds of million additional children and youth. While the Agency develops its Strategy for USAID Response to COVID-19 we are committed to providing the education sector with timely resources and guidance that address the likely secondary impacts of the pandemic.
We hope the curated collection of resources is helpful.
