Visit of the UNICEF Executive Board to Tajikistan
You’re watching UNICEF Television. UNICEF Executive Board Mission led by Ambassador Andrei Dapkiunas of Belarus visited Tajikistan in late April. The aim of the visit was to asses a situation of children and women in a central Asian country.
During the visit, board members met with Tajikistan government officials including the Deputy Prime Minister and the ministers of health, education, labor, and social protection. They also met with representatives of other UN agencies in the country, international development partners and civil society organizations.
The board members visited Rash district in Eastern Tajikistan, one of the country’s poorest regions. Rash was selected as one of the eight districts where over the next two years, UNICEF will strongly enhance its engagement in a social sector.
In Rash, board members visited the UNICEF supported local health committee. The committee has been setup to address iodine deficiency disorders. Now it consists of representatives from district and village authorities, health, education, social protection, district inspection agencies, religious leaders, local NGOs, and the media.
The committee meets every two months to discuss critical issues related to public health. Board members also visited the central district hospital. UNICEF supports a hospital’s maternity section by providing essential life-saving equipments. Executive Board members also visited local room school number 28. a UNICEF supported education program encourages girls’ enrolment and a continuance of their education.
This has been achieved mainly by providing community mobilization, outreach, and provision of supplementary reading materials. All of these resources make the learning process more interesting for children. This support exemplifies UNICEFs efforts in saving the lives of children in Tajikistan.
