Dear HIFA

The South Sudan Medical Journal has just published a special COVID-19 issue giving information and resources for health professionals working in and for South Sudan - see http://www.southsudanmedicaljournal.com/assets/files/Journals/vol_13_iss....

It includes an article on Communicating to children about the COVID-19 pandemic. See http://www.southsudanmedicaljournal.com/archive/may-2020/communicating-t.... Ongoing conversations about COVID-19 may cause worry and anxiety among children depending on the information they hear and their interpretation of it, and this article gives tips and guidance for parents and those working with children in South Sudan.
