On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, resulting in disruptions to education at an unprecedented scale.

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in widespread school closures globally, including in Kenya.
This report summarises lessons learned by the GEC since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020. It also outlines the ‘principles’ which have guided action planning at every level and provides a timeline (including phases of response management) for effective action.
The aim of this knowledge paper is to collect and synthesise emerging evidence, strategies and lessons learnt from CSE delivery in non-conventional settings in low- and middle-income countries. Also, this paper contributes to the documentation of online SRHR service delivery during COVID-19.
This commentary aims to examine the COVID-19 disruptions to CSE programming, responses, and strategies from countries and organisations to overcome challenges caused by COVID restrictions, and to explore the potential for digital technologies to deliver information and education in new ways.
