Prevention of Childhood Disabilities
The health element to UNICEF’s cross-cutting emphasis on children with disability is the early detection and prevention or reduction of severity of childhood disabilities. This is a new component of UNICEF’s health programme. UNICEF began to advocate such measures in 2011, and now it provides technical assistance to the Ministry of Health to create a national plan for the reduction of childhood disabilities through early screening, supporting the development and use of relevant protocols.
