UNICEF in Kosovo and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg renew partnership to enhance health and education services for all children
UNICEF in Kosovo and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg have renewed their three-year partnership to enhance health, education, and well-being services for young children. The new agreement builds on the successes of prior collaboration – one notable achievement being the expansion of the Home Visiting programme for maternal and child health Kosovo wide.
This new phase of the partnership will work closely with the Ministry of Health to continue to enhance the quality of the Home Visiting programme moving towards a more progressive model that provides more intensive services for at-risk children, especially those with developmental delays or disabilities, and those at risk of violence. Furthermore, the capacities of Family Medicine Centers to provide services for at-risk children and introduce regular developmental monitoring into Primary Health Care will be enhanced.
The new programme will also support the expansion of the network of community based Early Childhood Education centers in rural areas, targeting children from the most marginalized communities where more boys and girls will be exposed to opportunities for early learning and development.
UNICEF is grateful to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for their support and commitment to improving the health, well-being, and education outcomes for young children in Kosovo.
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.
