  • Description

    A four-day meeting of UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund) officials and delegates in Abidjan has been reviewing current policies, particularly where they relate to projected assistance to Central and West Africa after 1973. On Monday (24 May) the meeting, chaired by UNICEF's deputy chief.....Dr. Challes Egger, was considering the health and education needs of young children and youths on a global basis, and examining aspects in which African needs differed. Among organizations represented were the World Health Organisation, International Labour Office, the U.N. Economic Commission for Africa, and banking interests.

    SYNOPSIS: The Education Ministry building in Abidjan where UNICEF delegates met for four days, earlier this week, to examine current policies.

    UNICEF's responsibility is the oversight of health and education on young children and youths.

    Dr. Charles Egger, UNICEF's deputy chief, chaired the Ivory Coast meeting, which was also being attended by representatives of the World Health Organisation, International Labour Office, and the United Nation's Economic Commission for Africa.

    Under close scrutiny at the meeting were policies which related particularly to Central and West African assistance after 1973. Most Central and West African states have already given UNICEF a list of projects they would like the organisation to finance from that year. Because of this, banking interests and advisers also attended the meeting.
