UNICEF e1698412415738

The Federal Government Ministry of Women Affairs and United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) inaugurated the harmonized case management tools for child protection nationwide yesterday, 26th October 2023.

Mrs Uju Ohaneye, minister of women’s affairs, signed the tools and commitment to implement integrated case management tools for vulnerable children and their caregivers with all 36 state commissioners in attendance.

She urged the commissioners to use these tools to ensure that the vulnerable children in each state are protected.

She explained that there are increasing cases of abuse, violence, maltreatment, and harmful traditional practices affecting children, so these tools are designed to protect children from them.

UNICEF Deputy Country Representative, Ronak Khan, said the tool would aid in addressing the plight of vulnerable children especially those at the grassroots.

These tools are what the federal government needs to effectively implement policies and strategies to take care of vulnerable children.

With the tools, the government and UNICEF would be able to know where the affected children are coming from, services that would be rendered to them the results of the services and how effective they are.
