New York, New York, UNICEF, 2004 Jul.  p.Collaboration has always been a driving force behind UNICEF’s mission to see that all children enjoy their rights to health, education, equality and protection. As this Annual Report illustrates, UNICEF continues to build alliances with governments, donors, communities and children themselves to make this a world fit for children and, by extension, for all people. This report summarizes the many steps being taken by UNICEF and its partners in their long-standing mission to decrease child mortality rates, increase school attendance and strengthen child protection laws. Readers will also see the ways in which UNICEF works with determination to protect children from abuse, exploitation and discrimination, and works to ensure that children’s rights are neither abrogated by emergencies – such as wars or natural disasters – nor trampled because of gender, poverty or disease.

The implementation of UNICEF policies and strategies on children in need of special protection measures. Statement of the Non-Governmental Organization Committee on UNICEF to the UNICEF Executive Board at its annual session, 2-6 June 1997.
[Unpublished] 1997 Jun 4. 2 p. (E/ICEF/1997/NGO/1)This paper presents the statement of the Nongovernmental Organization (NGO) Committee of the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) concerning the implementation of UNICEF policies and strategies on children in need of special protection measures. The four facts which emerged from a study on children in armed conflict that will influence NGO planning and programs are: 1) children in homes without strong family ties are more vulnerable against abduction and recruitment into armies; 2) children who were exposed to harassment or ill-treatment of their families often join armed groups; 3) girls are especially defenseless in armed conflict situations; and 4) several armed conflict children survivors suffer from post-traumatic stress disorders and are being helped by NGOs through a variety of programs. Since 1994, a multipronged approach has been adopted by the NGO Committee to address this issue including peace education and youth involvement in the process, dialogues with military representatives, and negotiations on raising minimum recruitment age to 18 years. Meanwhile, unregistered children are vulnerable to panoply of abuses including under-age recruitment to armed forces or opposition groups, trafficking, sale, prostitution, forced marriages, and forced labor. The NGO Committee has started to work on this issue in Southeast Asia in collaboration with regional partners and UNICEF. It is ready to protect vulnerable children and families wherever possible.
