UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.
For every child, results.
UNICEF's overall goal is to support the Government of Iraq in realizing the rights of all Iraq's children to survival, development, protection and participation, and the creation of an enabling environment to ensure strengthened accountabilities for children with an equity approach. UNICEF works to improve the situation of children in Iraq through three key interventions:
- Support the Government of Iraq to develop:
- Monitoring policies in all sectors relevant to children (ie. health, nutrition, education, water and sanitation, protection and overall social policy).
- Institutions that effectively deliver essential services to children as well as empower children and their families to adopt behaviour practices that will improve their well-being
- A legal framework to protect children.
- Increase knowledge on children's rights and issues to inform government decision making and development planning.
- Advocacy for policies that protect children's rights, including government development plans and budget allocations that prioritize interventions in Iraq's most deprived children.
