What we do

The overall goal of the 2012 - 2016 Country programme is to support national efforts to progressively realise children’s and women’s rights through improved child survival, development, protection and participation.


The purpose of the survival component is to ensure that all children in Malawi reach their 5th birthday and thereafter grow and realize their full potential.


Early childhood and adolescent development, basic quality education for all, participation by children and young people in matters of national interest, and prevention of HIV/AIDS among adolescents.



Supporting the Government to develop a National Child Protection System. Moreover, UNICEF recognizes social protection as a fundamental right for children.


Promoting social inclusion of the most marginalized households, especially children and women, through evidence-based advocacy with knowledge generation on emerging issues.
