On 30 January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel corona virus (COVID-19) outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. The virus continued to spread throughout the world and was finally declared a pandemic on 11 March 2020. Globally, there are more than 100+ million confirmed cases and over 2.2M deaths from COVID-19. The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impacts on multiple aspects of the regional economy and livelihood create an urgent need for timely data and evidence to monitor the crisis and inform interventions and policy responses. WHO, UNICEF and the World Bank have jointly developed this package to support ongoing surveys to evaluate and inform the social, economic, and behavioural impact of COVID-19, including vaccines, in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean and UNICEF Middle East and North Africa regions.
