Robert N. Sinclair , Nishu Aggarwal
The Eastern and Southern African Regional Office (ESARO) of UNICEF received a total of SEK 30 million from Sida for the period 2002-2006 to mainstream a rights based approach into child protection work to safeguard the rights of children orphaned and made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. The co-operation aimed at strengthening the capacity of UNICEF at regional and country levels (in Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe) to apply the rights based approach in child protection programming. UNICEF was to support development of legislation, policies, and improved monitoring, with a focus on capacity development and improved co-ordination at regional, national and local level.
