Publication Abstract

Hermosilla, Sabrina, Janna Metzler, Kevin Savage, Miriam Musa, and Alastair Ager. 2019. "Child friendly spaces impact across five humanitarian settings: a meta-analysis." BMC Public Health, 19(1): 576.

Humanitarian crises present major threats to the wellbeing of children. These threats include risks of violence, abduction and abuse, emotional distress and the disruption of development. Humanitarian response efforts frequently address these threats through psychosocial programming. Systematic reviews have demonstrated the weak evidence-base regarding the impact of such interventions. This analysis assesses the impact of Child Friendly Spaces (CFS), one such commonly implemented intervention after humanitarian emergencies.
