It supports establishment and revision of appropriate legislative frameworks on child-related laws and policies in conjunction with the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other relevant international standards. “End Violence Against Children” has been launched to promote change in social and cultural practices and innovative measures are being adapted to support birth registration.
