UN in Tajikistan launch special bulletin on Children's Day
DUSHANBE, Tajikistan, 1 June 2011 - The special edition of the UN Tajikistan bulletin was dedicated to the issues of children and the young generation of Tajikistan. The publication highlights joint and coordinated efforts of UN system in Tajikistan in addressing sometimes insurmountable problems facing the new generation of Tajik children.
The timeliness of the special publication should be stressed as Tajikistan is still facing a growing number of children being denied their basic rights and needs. The UN attempts to highlight those areas where the activities have had some modest but important success such as access to education, safeguarding children’s health, improving school conditions and processes with supplementary programs, improving children’s livelihoods and UN’s joint and quick response to polio outbreak last year.
