The stance of the institution is expressed in a press release issued in the ambit of the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child marked on November 20.

The UNICEF representative in Angola, Abubacar Sultan, underlined that the current challenges for a child to have access to all essential rights for her survival, protection and development will be overcome only through a national commitment.

He also spoke of the importance of establishing strong alliances where responsibilities are split and shared by the government, families and society.

Since Angola ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1990, it has been visible the steps the country has been giving towards the harmonization of the legal framework and policies to secure the rights of the child, Mr Sultan added.
