UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
UNICEF, in collaboration with other international and national stakeholders, is supporting the Government of Mozambique to implement a holistic social and child protection system, including integrated case management that links community based and statutory structures.
To streamline the existing social and child protection system and to develop evidence-based prevention and response interventions to violations of children’s rights, to determine and monitor patterns of vulnerabilities, there is a need to invest in routine collection and analyses of data on vulnerabilities, risks factors, violations and service delivery.
No national system can operate without a systematic, regular and coherent way of measuring the efficiency of the services provided both by statutory and informal agents
Addressing this challenge, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Action, with support from development partners, is developing an Information Management System (SI-MA – Sistema de Monitoria e Avaliacao), based on DHIS2, and is strengthening staff capacities to monitor and evaluate service delivery.
