South Sudan: Policy on Children Without Appropriate Parental Care passed

02 Aug 2018

On 8 June, during a regular Council of Ministers meeting chaired by the President of the Republic of South Sudan, the Minister of Gender, Child and Social Welfare (MGCSW) presented the Policy on Children Without Appropriate Parental Care (PCWAPC), after which it was unanimously passed by the cabinet. The policy was first developed in 2009 through technical and financial support from UNICEF, with the final draft issued in 2015. Passage by the Cabinet marks a significant milestone, as the PCWAPC provides a framework for programming for children who are separated both voluntarily and involuntarily from their parents and children without appropriate care, such as those working and living on the streets. The finalisation of this policy is also one of the priorities of the MGCSW’s five-year Strategic Plan (2013-2018).
