UNICEF will support targeted national institutions dealing with specific vulnerable groups of  children to improve institutional capacities for implementation and coordination of programmes for the prevention of Violence Against Children.

UNICEF will also support the National Body on the Convention on the Rights of the Child (NBCRC) in establishment of a comprehensive and inter-sectoral national coordination mechanism for prevention of Violence Against Children. 

UNICEF will contribute to further strengthening of capacities of the Judiciary, Police, Prisons Organization, and State Welfare Organization for provision of the required support to children and adolescents in contact with the law.

UNICEF will also support development of a model which establishes and links together the key components of a child-centred justice system, namely a juvenile court, juvenile police unit, and aftercare centre.
