Mother and son


The Situation Analysis (SitAn) presents a broad assessment and analysis of the situation of children and women in Malaysia, and the realisation of their rights, identifying gaps and priority areas in which action should be taken to accelerate progress. The immediate purpose of this report is to inform the strategic planning discussions for the development of the UNICEF– Government of Malaysia (GOM) Country Programme 2021-2025 and other planning processes, such as UNSDCF (UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Frameworks – previously UNDAF), for which UNICEF and the GOM are already undertaking preparatory work. The SitAn will also support national planning and development processes, in particular the GOM’s 12th National Development Plan 2021-2025.
