The present Covid-19 situation in Mozambique presents challenges for humanitarian and development actors operating in the country. These challenges include restricted travel to provide life-saving assistance to vulnerable groups, monitor programs, remote supervision of staff in the field, and even less access to already hard-to-reach communities to conduct community sensitisation activities. In this environment, the risk of sexual exploitation and abuse may increase, and reporting channels may be compromised as well as our capacity of referral and investigation.

This document is intended to provide guidance to PSEA Network members and Heads of Agencies to ensure that prevention and response mechanisms are in place through this challenging period.
