Despite the remarkable progress in the full implementation of children's rights in Greece after World War II, there are several important issues to ensure the full realization of these rights as predicted in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (SDP). The first formal framework of cooperation between UNICEF and Greece provides a new platform of collaboration to address systemic barriers that continue to leave children out of progress. This includes strengthening the national capacity to develop a strategic policy planning and implementation.

UNICEF's report on the Situation of Children and Youth in Greece is available in English and Greek.
