Advocacy for women and children during the presidential elections

© UNICEF Mali / 2013 / Dicko

UNICEF is leading advocacy efforts to reach out to all 27 presidential candidates to ensure children’s issues are at the heart of the agenda. A fact sheet was produced and shared with candidates, listing some of Mali's shocking statistics: 90% of women have undergone female genital mutilation; one million children are out of school; 2.2 million people defecate in the open air. 

The topic was covered by the daily newspaper The Guardian  on 23 July 2013.
