High Risk-Low Priority: Why Unlocking COVID 19 Vaccine Access for Refugees and Internally Displaced Communities is Critical for Children


This report prepared and published by WVI aimed to bring urgent attention to the devastating, yet largely unreported, impact of the pandemic on forcibly displaced children and their families, which was being amplified by their lack of access to COVID-19 vaccines during the pandemic. Using the findings from a new World Vision survey conducted across eight countries with different groups of refugees in Brazil, Colombia, the DRC, Jordan, Peru, Uganda, and Turkey, and with internally displaced Venezuelans, this report sets out recommendations from the refugees and IDPs that were spoken to and recommendations from World Vision calling on donors, host governments, and the international community to explicitly include FDP in national and global responses to the pandemic and address the growing needs of children as a matter of urgency.
