The new UNICEF Strategic Plan for 2018-2021 has been approved, and it is great news for the Primero community! The plan's results framework includes 2 specific output indicators under Goal Area 3: Every Child is Protected from Violence.
The Outcome Statement reads like this: Outcome Statement 3: Girls and boys, especially the most vulnerable and those affected by humanitarian situations, are protected from all forms of violence, exploitation, abuse and harmful practices.
3.a.1 . Number of countries with a quality assurance system in place for social service work (this is a composite indicator which includes a sub-indicator on digital case management systems)
3.a.3 . Number of countries in which an inter -operable information management system supports and tracks case management, incident monitoring, and programme monitoring
These indicators demonstrate the organization's increasing commitment to improved data management in Child Protection as a key contributing factor to quality of care and protective environments. We couldn't be more excited about the role that Primero has to play in delivering quality care and programming for vulnerable children and survivors of violence. It's time to double-down on our commitment to scaling up and supporting this work.
Onward and upward!.... as we move this agenda forward together.
