International Children’s Center-ICC publishes Annual Report of 2012

International Children’s Center-ICC publishes its 2012 Annual Report with below messages from Prof Tomris Türmen, the President of ICC. You may download the report from here.

“This Annual Report gives a synopsis of our Center’s contribution to improving the lives of children, young people and women everywhere. 2012 has been a rich year for the International Children’s Center full of interesting activities in the area of health and human rights. Our work is based on research, evidence-based advocacy, capacity building, networking and strengthening grassroots organizations.

We continue to work as a strong advocate for issues related to newborn health, early childhood development, nutrition, child health and rights, violence against women and children, justice for children, sexual abuse, health and rights of women and young people, and reproductive health and rights.

We have three priorities for the coming years:

1.      “Child brides” has become a core priority activity of our Center as it unites all our work areas. Our Center mainly focuses on health consequences of early and forced marriage as well as striving for changes in the legal system. We are part of the national and international networks to end early and forced marriage.

2.      Our second priority is to follow and contribute to the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD-2014) discussions at the national and regional level as a civil society organization. We believe in the importance of the Cairo agenda and its implementation as a powerful tool for women’s health and reproductive health and rights.

3.      Our third priority is to participate fully in the new development agenda - the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) post-2015. MDGs initially were created with very little impact from the civil society; therefore we are actively involved in contributing to the process for “new development goals” 2015 onwards.

Our Center will continue to work towards a society where each individual enjoys fully his/her rights and freedoms and benefits from development, good health and well-being.”
