The three UN agencies based in Kiribati (UNICEF, UN Women and WHO) developed a joint programme proposal for “strengthening of the equitable social and protection services in Kiribati”. This programme proposal is one of the five proposals submitted by UN agencies based in the Pacific. Three UN agencies identified the priorities according to the planned activities for 2010-2011 that have already been agreed upon with the national implementing partners.

The main outputs of the proposal are as follows :

  • Health system strengthening and better child health through improved access to primary health care information and services - Improved protection of the rights of women and children through strengthening of treaty reporting and training and advocacy in the formal and informal justice system
  • Capacity building and improvement of financial management system of the key ministries for implementation of HACT
  • Technical assistance for a feasibility study and development of a strategy/plan for joint SPC/UN support for introduction of ICT media for achievement of the MDGs

The program promotes inter-agency cooperation between UNICEF, UNIFEM and the WHO that have technical staff on the ground for planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the regular programmes.

Consultations have been done for the programme proposal with the partners of the government ministries and the head offices of UNICEF and UN Women in Fiji. WHO country liaison office in Kiribati participated in the discussions and agreed that UNICEF would take the lead in implementation of the programme activities. The Government of Kiribati endorsed the proposed programme in September 2010 and UN Resident Coordinator informed the approval of the programme in October 2010.

The participating UN agencies in Kiribati agreed that UNICEF and UN Women will manage the programme funds and make a joint reporting on programme outputs/outcomes and monitor the progress of the programme on a monthly basis.
