About

In January 2021, UNICEF, in partnership with the European Union (EU), launched a two-year programme to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lives of children and families in the Western Balkans and Türkiye. EU funding of €5 million is enabling UNICEF to ensure that quality core services for health, learning, child protection, and early childhood development (ECD) remains accessible for 490,000 of the region’s most disadvantaged children – now and beyond the pandemic.

This newsletter provides key highlights from the ongoing work in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Türkiye during the first nine months of programme implementation.
