• This initiative  was designed as a UN Country Team response to the most urgent needs of children with disabilities, under the lead of UNICEF and in partnership with Handicap International (HI) and local partner Korean Federation for the Protection of the Disabled (KFPD) for the implementation through the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH). The programme  will mainly work around four dimensions:

    1. Improving the health and rehabilitation care service provision for children with disabilities through strengthening the health care system
    2. Enhancing the institutional and technical capacities of health service provider as well as duty bearers (MoPH and KFPD).
    3. Promoting the inclusive health care service/policy for children with disabilities in line with UNCRPD by introducing early identification of childhood disabilities and intervention as an entry point.
    4. Creating awareness among duty bearers, rights holders and community on the rights of children with disabilities and their specific needs.
