Monitoring the situation of children and women

Quality data is essential to monitor the status of children, to highlight progress in improving child protection, to document the challenges ahead, and to advocate on behalf of those who need it the most. A key goal of UNICEF is to ensure that government decisions are increasingly influenced by better knowledge and awareness of children’s rights and improved data and analysis on child protection issues. This map presents key child protection statistics at regional level.
