The UNICEF Egypt Country Strategy and Action Plan (2013-2017) study involved the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of four development programs

  1.  Young Child Survival and Development (YCSD)
  2.  HIV/AIDS
  3. Early Child Education Development and
  4. Child Protection Program.

The above projects' objectives were

  • Reducing child and maternal mortality and morbidity;
  • Addressing malnutrition and micro-nutrient deficiencies;
  • School improvement to promote quality education;
  • Improving protection of children from violence, abuse and discrimination; and
  • Reducing vulnerability to HIV-AIDs.

The overall objective of the study is to undertake a strategic reflection in preparation of the next country plan (2013-2017). The study took a stock of the major policy changes and changes in the situation of children, women and youth in the post 2011 revolution period with a focus on gender equity and on the implementation of human rights-based approach (HRBA) . The conclusions of the four evaluation studies across four upper and northern governorates and the political and policy analysis have provided invaluable input and lessons learned laying-out a clear future role with a focus on where investments of UNICEF would be allocated based on its competitive advantages and the effectiveness of its program’s delivery.
