Transformation of Social Service Delivery: Implementing Human Rights-Based Approach for Children, Youth and Women with Disabilities in Uzbekistan
The UN Joint Programme on Transformation of Social Service Delivery: Implementing Human Rights-Based Approach for Children, Youth and Women with Disabilities in Uzbekistan is aimed to support the national commitment to the achievement of CRPD-compliant SDGs through a robust legislative and policy framework, sound coordination structures and meaningful participation of organizations of persons with disabilities.
The Joint Programme is implemented by four UN Agencies: UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), United Nation Development Programme (UNDP) and Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).
The programme is funded by the UNPRPD Fund.
The Joint Programme will provide a mix of capacity building, policy dialogue and technical assistance, aimed at building an integrated social protection system at institutional, policy and operational levels.
- The programme will address the essential building blocks to the CRPD implementation that are legislative reform, strengthening the representativity and capacity of OPDs, and availability of inclusive services (Outcome 1).
- The programme specifically focuses on accessible person-centered and age-appropriate services in the community, aimed at supporting the autonomy and inclusion of children, women and men with disabilities and prevention of institutionalization, violence and abuse. Development of early identification and early intervention services for children with disabilities will be one of the focus areas of the programme, as will the inclusion of women and girls with disabilities in programmes addressing gender-based violence (Outcome 2).
- The programme intends to strengthen disability mainstreaming within the implementing country-level UN agencies’ activities to ensure that national development assessments, plans, budgets, programs and monitoring mechanisms supported under the SDG processes advance disability-inclusive development in Uzbekistan (Outcome 3).
