What we do
UNICEF is the global leader promoting and protecting children’s rights in 190 countries, including Guinea-Bissau.
UNICEF’s work in Guinea-Bissau
The UNICEF Guinea-Bissau Country Programme 2022-2026 is fully aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF), 2022–2026, leading and participating in joint efforts, particularly on outcomes related to human capital development and governance. The UNSDCF in turn is aligned with the National Development Plan 2020–2023.
By 2026, mothers, girls and boys, including newborns and adolescents, have equitable and increased access to quality high impact interventions for their survival and development.
By 2026, children, including adolescents, especially the most vulnerable, have increased access to and benefit from quality early childhood development services, pre-primary, primary and lower secondary education, as well as alternative learning opportunities, in a safe and protective environment.
By 2026, girls and boys, especially the most disadvantaged, increasingly benefit from a child protection system that effectively prevents and responds to violence, abuse and exploitation, and enjoy increased, equitable access to birth registration services.
By 2026, more vulnerable boys and girls benefit from an equity-based social protection system and children benefit from more public spending on health, education and social protection.
30 implementing partners were trained on the Harmonised Approach to Cash Transfers (HACT) to ensure that funds transferred are utilised for intended purposes and assurance measures were undertaken.
