CDC is working to learn more about the range of short- and long-term health effects associated with COVID-19.

COVID-19 has further highlighted this need, given it is unravelling the hard-fought gains made over recent decades in reducing maternal, newborn and child mortality. During 2020, coverage of lifesaving health interventions for women, children and adolescents in 36 developing countries was estimated to have dropped by up to 25%. Recent UNFPA estimates indicate that across 115 low- and middle-income countries, the pandemic disrupted contraceptive use for about 12 million women, causing nearly 1.4 million unintended pregnancies in 2020. Similarly, according to a UNICEF, WHO and Gavi pulse survey, three-quarters of 82 surveyed countries reported COVID-19-related disruptions to immunization programmes.
