UNICEF Iran Representative Mandeep O'Brien met with Dr. Ahmad Meydari, Deputy Social Welfare of the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labour and Social Welfare (MCLSW) on Sunday 29 September.
During this courtesy visit, they exchanged ideas on improving multidimensional poverty measurement, real time monitoring and Single Registry system aimed at increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of social services in covering the needs of the most vulnerable children and their families.
UNICEF works with the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and other partners to strengthen national capacities in understanding, mapping and tracking multidimensional child poverty.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
