UNICEF Partnership

UNICEF Partnership

UNICEF is the United Nations Children’s Fund. The main goal of UNICEF activities is to protect and uphold the rights of every child to a safe, healthy, caring and happy childhood. In Russia, UNICEF operates in the following areas: early childhood, protection of children, youth health and development, and HIV/AIDS prevention. UNICEF supports the family as the best environment for any child.

In 2007, under cooperation with UNICEF, the Institute for Family Health analyzed and described all international projects in the field of prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission, implemented in the Russian regions. The results are presented in the informational and analytical report “Prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission. Experience of international cooperation.”

One of IFH’s priorities in the UNICEF partnership is to reduce mother-to-child HIV transmission and to advocate children’s rights. IFH and UNICEF have developed and republished materials on PMTCT, which are of great interest in Russian regions. Now IFH and UNICEF have established continuing partnership in this area.

In 2009, along with the Federal Service of the Russian Federation for Surveillance in Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) and UNICEF, IFH prepared the analytical report “Challenges in Prevention of Mother-to-child HIV Transmission,” containing the results of official data study, assessment of medical facilities and medical documentation.

Studies conducted by IFH make it possible to find gaps in the organization of HIV preventive care. The analytical report contains information that will be useful for a wide range of specialists – epidemiologists, obstetricians-gynecologists, pediatricians and health care providers. The analytical report was disseminated among regional healthcare facilities and HIV/AIDS centers.

The analytical report is available in Russian, see the Resources section.
