UNICEF Mozambique launches new web site

Maputo, Mozambique, 6 October 2005 – The new UNICEF Mozambique web site, entirely produced in by UNICEF staff, was launched today with a new look and feel and updated content.

The website describes UNICEF’s work in the areas of child survival, education, HIV/AIDS, and protection and offers an inside view into the lives of children in this Southern African country.

Mozambique is a young democracy, which in the years since the end of its civil war in 1992 has accomplished remarkable progress towards realizing the rights of children and women. But the country still has one of the world’s highest mortality rates for children with almost one in every five children dying before their fifth birthday.

Readers can check out the latest news on UNICEF’s initiatives and events, such as the recent visit of UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Liam Neeson or the upcoming “Unite for Children. Unite Against AIDS” campaign, which will be launched on 5 November in Maputo. More than one million children in Mozambique are affected by AIDS.

The web site will become a valuable information tool for development professionals, journalists and donors on children’s issues in Mozambique. As the site grows, new publications and reports, links to related content and other useful resources will be added.

And more is coming. Multimedia features, such as audio interviews and video stories, will soon be available as well as an expanded Media centre for journalists and a new section for donors, where reports and funding proposals will be available for download.

The web site was developed with the Reddot Content Management system.
