Queen Rania Launches Situation Analysis of Children in Jordan Highlighting Jordan's Progress in Improving Quality of Life; 6 Ministers Commit to Further Improving Results
Date:5/12/2008

AMMAN, Jordan, May 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While usually reserved for lighthearted fun and entertainment, the hallways of the Children's Museum of Jordan saw a different kind of gathering Monday, as child-health and education experts and policy makers came together to discuss the current trends in Jordan. Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah launched the latest Situation Analysis for Children in Jordan there, bringing some welcomed news about the Kingdom's progress. The report, which was prepared by the National Council for Family Affairs (NCFA) and UNICEF with participation from a large number of government and non-government organizations, as well as a number of youth representatives, hails Jordan as a role model for progress in improving the quality of life of its young citizen and identifies current challenges.

Six Jordanian ministers attended the launch and committed specific action plans to tackling these challenges based on the results of the report.

Lending her support to the launch, Queen Rania thanked all the partners for their efforts in highlighting Jordan's progress and outlining the challenges, and commended the inclusion of the voices of youth in compiling the report, stressing that they should always have a hand in the decisions that directly affect their lives.

A number of youth worked on the analysis in partnership with UNICEF and the NCFA to collect the data.

"We should always involve them and listen to them," said the Queen, who serves as President of NCFA and UNICEF's Eminent Advocate for Children. "They are, after all, the majority of the population and have great contributions to make."

According to the report, Jordan is on track to achieve most of the Millennium Development Goals. Jordan's human index has improved to ninth out of 19 countries in the region. Still, more needs to be done to improve antenatal care, better monitoring of high risk pregnancies, and higher post-natal coverage.
