A newborn infant receives specialised care at the UNICEF-supported Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Assosa General Hospital, in the remote Benishangul-Gumuz region of Ethiopia, Wednesday 17 January 2018. Despite remaining above the national average, Benishangul-Gumuz's newborn mortality rate fell by nearly 50 per cent between 2000 and 2016, from 65 deaths for every 1,000 live births to 35 deaths for every 1,000 live births. The improvement is due in part to health centers such as this one. Despite numerous challenges, including limited running water and refrigeration, dedicated doctors, nurses and midwives are able to provide comprehensive pre and postnatal care, delivery support and other lifesaving services for mothers and babies in the area.

On 4 December 2015 in Austria, 13-year-old Zein Alabdien Al-Faraji and his brother, 15-year-old Sajad Al-Faraji (who uses a wheelchair), laugh while using their cellular phones as they wait with their mother at Kurier Haus, a refugee processing centre in Vienna, the capital, where their family is applying for asylum. The family -- which also includes their sister, Houda Al-Malek – is from Basra Province in Iraq. Refugee and migrant flows into Europe remain at an unprecedented high. Many of them are escaping conflict and insecurity in their home countries of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and the Syrian Arab Republic.

By late November 2015, refugee and migrant flows into Europe remained at an unprecedented high. Since the beginning of the year, over 870,000 refugees and migrants have crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. Many of them are escaping conflict and insecurity in their home countries of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and the Syrian Arab Republic. More than one in five is a child. Sajad Al-Faraji, 16, who fled conflict in Basra, Iraq with his brother, Zein Alabdien Al-Faraji, 14, his sister, Houda Al-Malik 26, and his mother Mona Al-Hammoudi, 56, lost the use of his legs during an operation on his lower back when he was one month old in Iraq. His family arrived in Vienna in late 2015 after a harrowing trip through the Balkans.

In November 2015, Houda said “We owe it to my mom that we were able to reach this place.... Since the death of my father, she’s been restlessly struggling to continue with life, giving me and my brothers the motive to continue with our study. And when things deteriorated in Iraq, she decided to get Sajad out of Iraq and bring him here so he would no longer feel inferior.” She added: “My mother took the risk and decided to leave Iraq. She told me she was ready to die in the sea, but the most important thing was that I take my brothers to the country I choose.” Of their sea passage, she said: “We got on that inflatable boa

全球父母在這數碼時代面對的挑戰

UNICEF HK期望「兒童事務委員會」為兒童逐步成為獨立法定機構

香港,2018年2月5日──聯合國兒童基金香港委員會(UNICEF HK)歡迎政府定於本年內成立「兒童事務委員會」,並建議委員會先以諮詢機構形式運作至2020年,屆時應已規劃出法定權力及功能建議,釐定兒童事務委員會法案,並在今屆政府任期屆滿前(即2022年6月30日前)完成立法程序,令委員會成為獨立法定機構,為兒童服務。 回應政府公眾諮詢,UNICEF HK表明在起首階段作為諮詢機構的重要性,委員會應擔起跨部門協調的角色,在政務司司長帶領下與處理兒童事務的局方合作,確保在處理相關問題的過程中聚焦於兒童的需要和發展。 政府以兒童為焦點,提高其處理兒童權利問題的進程。 目前,政府處理兒童問題的制度分散在各局或部門,UNICEF HK總幹事劉玉燕表示:「由一個獨立及具權威性[...]
