This jointly published briefing addresses the unique situation of children who have a parent(s) in prison, or may be living in prison with their mother during the coronavirus pandemic. These children already face a range of specific rights considerations, many of which have been exacerbated by the global pandemic. This briefing provides both impacts and recommendations for States and other actors: these include focus on the right to family life, the right to health and hygiene, as well as measures to reduce prison populations, amongst others.
