Turkey is unique as a country in which UNICEF has both a National Committee, to promote child rights and raise funds from individuals and the private sector, and a Country Office implementing a programme of cooperation in key areas of child well-being. As in other countries, the Country Office operates on the basis of a Country Programme discussed, agreed and signed with the Government. The existing Country Programme covers the period from 2011 to 2015.
Under the Country Programme, UNICEF Turkey is collaborating with a large number of government ministries and agencies such as the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of National Education, the Ministry of Justice, the State Planning Organisation and the General Directorate for Social Services and the Child Protection Agency (SHCEK). UNICEF also partners with Parliament and local government. Where appropriate, it links up with other international organizations including the European Union and the World Bank. Universities and research institutions, civil society, the media and children themselves are all involved in the implementation of the Country Programme.
In countries like Turkey, which has a large economy and strong institutions, UNICEF does not provide services to children and adolescents directly but concentrates instead on contributing to the formulation of child-related policies and the design and implementation of mechanisms for putting these policies into practice. To this end, UNICEF shares its international experience, advocates for legislative and systems change, facilitates coordination and cooperation, and offers technical assistance to its partners in developing replicable child-friendly models to deliver services to children and in monitoring progress.
The generation and dissemination of knowledge, raising public awareness, promotion of policy debate and mobilisation of resources for the realization of children’s and women’s rights and youth are integral parts of the Country Programme. UNICEF and its partners aim to stimulate support, encourage complementary efforts and enhance the abilities of duty-bearers and rights-holders to claim and realize children’s rights. The Country Programme is conducted with a view to ensuring social inclusion, respect for human rights, gender equality, awareness of climate change, emergency preparedness and the active involvement of children and young people. The experience gained is documented and shared with other countries.
