Child protection: Punjab lags behind in child protection

Two day consultation on “Adapting System Approach to Child Protection in Pakistan” concludes.


Express December 24, 2011

ISLAMABAD: Two day consultation on “Adapting System Approach to Child Protection in Pakistan” concluded with a consensus among the provinces to share the modules and Standard Operating Procedures. Organised by Child Rights Legal Centre (CRLC) in collaboration with Save the Children, the consultation revealed an important fact that the government of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) apparently had a lead in child protection mechanism with its Child Welfare Department actively involving stakeholders in various projects. However, the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) government was also working on many projects for child protection. However, it was revealed that the Punjab government, who had taken the initiative of child protection a decade ago, is now lagging behind all the provinces.

Somehow, I think that child protection is better in Punjab than any other province since there is better overall management of the province there. Maybe laws may be better elsewhere but the situation in the Punjab is better than anywhere in Pakistan.
