The objective of this study is to assess the current system of child benefits in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, with the primary goal of understanding to what extent this financial assistance is reaching the poorest members of the community, and whether these payments are adequate to meet the needs of children. Building on this assessment, the study recommends specific reforms that could decrease the level of child poverty and improve coherence in the existing policies. This study was conducted by Oxford Policy Management (OPM), under contract to UNICEF Skopje.
