Social Affairs Ministry Promoting Child Protection Information Management

Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation has organised a review workshop to further promote its effectiveness in child protection information management system.

Taking place recently at an outsourced venue here in Phnom Penh, the exercise done through cooperation with UN child rights agency UNICEF was chaired by H.E. Sao Len, Director General of the ministry's General Department of Administration and Finance.

Through the workshop, the team in charge at the ministry accessed their roles and responsibilities in formulation and rollout of child protection information management.

Capacity gaps of competent officials were also discussed and capacity building mechanisms were defined to fix the limitations.

The gathering also reviewed the ministry's existing child protection data collection system so as to build it into a more robust information management system.
