The effects of the pandemic on the poor in developing countries may be particularly severe, as many citizens are already vulnerable and largely without access to formal government social protection. In this context, many cost-effective and rapidly scalable mechanisms have emerged to extend social support during this crisis.

COVID-19 and its associated school closures present significant challenges for Ghana’s education system. Ghanaian children were out of school from March 2020 until January 2021, losing out on the hours of learning that the structured school setting presents along with other benefits such as the school feeding program. Under the present conditions, research and data offer guidance to inform the reopening of schools.

On March 11, 2021, Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) hosted this webinar presented emerging data on the effects of COVID-19 on education in Ghana.
