Novel coronavirus (191) Guidance for remote rural communities (6) Global review of social protection responses to COVID19

23 March, 2020

I'd like to make a comment on Carol Tyroler's post on March 21st regarding a World Bank blog article about the social protections that low income countries are providing to their people during COVID-19. [

That blog had a few other links, so I checked them out. One was a blog by another World Bank researcher named Ugo Gentilini ( He is publishing a weekly newsletter listing and explaining all new social programs being provided globally -- the first publication is available here: It is such a useful resource for us all to draw from, and use in our own advocacy to government representatives. I highly recommend signing up to receive the newsletter if you are interested in the social and economic aspects of this pandemic worldwide.

Stay safe out there.
