The Challenge

In order to make Azerbaijan’s society more inclusive and respectful of child rights, UNICEF continues building new alliances with a variety of partners in both the public and private spheres. As part of its efforts to strengthen accountability, UNICEF promotes child rights through the media, including social media and encourage the private sector to adopt child rights principles to underpin corporate social responsibility.
The interconnected and multi-layered causes simultaneously affect different child rights.  In addition, certain groups of children are more vulnerable than others for reasons of gender, disability, poverty or geographical location. Collecting and analysing adequately disaggregate data is an essential step towards reducing inequities. For this reason, UNICEF assists the Government in establishing a central and comprehensive database on children and child rights in Azerbaijan. To measure and monitor different and overlapping deprivations, which will help to identify the most vulnerable children and their needs. Established knowledge base will support designing evidence based interventions and programs. The ultimate goal of these efforts is to establish a comprehensive and independent child rights monitoring system in cooperation with all stakeholders, including the Government, civil society, academia, the private sector, media, as well as children and adolescents.
