UNICEF has called for the submission of proposals for a Consultancy to Research and Develop Communication and Evidence-Based Effective Messaging to identify a service provider to research compelling, evidence-based messaging and framing to mobilize greater and more sustained commitment from major decision-makers on the value of investing in community-based services in order to accelerate childcare system reforms across Europe and Central Asia.
Meant to highlight the maxim that every child deserves the best that we all have to give; this book provides a review of the progress made since The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It contains reports from 21 countries on the status of the rights of the child. The countries are: Australia, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, India, Iran, Japan, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Serbia, Solomon Islands, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK, the USA, Uzbekistan and Venezuela. There are no reports from Africa.
The purpose of this Request for Proposal for Services (RFPS) is to select and contract a service provider (SP) to research and design a compelling, evidence-based communication and advocacy strategy to mobilize greater and more sustained commitment from major decision-makers on the value of investing in community-based services in order to accelerate childcare system reforms across Europe and Central Asia.

This paper describes the diversified approaches in Eastern and Central Europe and Central Asia to end the placement of children under three in institutions and prevent the separation of children from their families.
In this UNICEF blog post, the author, Benjamin Perks, describes the many detrimental effects of institutionalization on young children and infants. The author highlights the 2012 Call to Action to eradicate placement of children under 3 in large scale institutions in Central Asia and Central and Eastern Europe and the advances made since then in reducing the numbers of children in institutions in the region.
