If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world’s leading children’s rights organization would like to hear from you.
For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children’s survival, protection and development. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
The Ministry of Social Development (MoSD) is responsible for national social protection policy development and coordination, formulation and supervision of social protection service delivery. For the past decade, MoSD, in cooperation with various national and international partners, has provided social protection services to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable groups, with a particular focus on cash and food transfers targeting families living in extreme poverty.
In the latest Social Development Sector Strategy, MoSD has undertaken to strengthen a systems-based approach to social protection. Specifically this is implemented through the introduction of an on-line case management system, where case workers link their clients to relevant programmes and services depending on their specific needs and vulnerabilities. The new system is expected to promote integration of social transfers and social services and help forge stronger relationships between different departments within MOSD, as well as MOSD and other line ministries.
One of the key challenges hindering the development of systems-based social protection is its weak monitoring and evaluation (M&E), which is the most basic elements of results based management. Consequently, increased support is needed to develop a comprehensive M&E system as an integral part of systems-based social protection system.
