Monitoring the situation of children and women: a special focus


On this page, you will find a series of brief information documents* that focus on the work UNICEF does in terms of monitoring the situation of children and women worldwide.

 

The first one provides an overview of the role played by UNICEF’s Statistics and Monitoring section in achieving that goal. The next four information sheets focus on UNICEF’s monitoring work in the areas of 1- child protection, 2- child survival and development, 3- children and education and 4- children and AIDS. The last three documents highlight the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) programme, the DevInfo database system and the childinfo website.
