CHILD PROTECTION INDEX: Armenia, 2016. Measuring government efforts to protect girls and boys.
The Child Protection Index is a unique tool that measures the progress of a country towards the fulfilment of its child protection obligations under the UNCRC. It analyses the system of child protection through five dimensions of government action: policy, service delivery, capacity, accountability and coordination. Using the Index results, stakeholders can map out progress and existing gaps in the current system to better reform and create targeted interventions.
