Cyprus - Country Profile on the European Semester and COVID-19 crisis
Cyprus does not have a proper national strategy to tackle child poverty. The impact of the economic crisis limited the capacity of the state to properly invest in social policies. The COVID-19 crisis is likely to make the situation even worse. The government reacted fast in implementing measures to mitigatethe socio-economic effect of the pandemic, but it is far from sufficient for it to improve the situation of children in poverty.
