Children in the Central Asia and South Caucasus sub-regions are vulnerable to poorly mitigated natural hazards, under-resourced social services, and weak governance and protection, despite the middle-income status of these countries. More than 80 per cent of children in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan live in areas of high or very high seismic risk, and 87 per cent of schools in Kyrgyzstan assessed for seismic risk are unsafe. The unfinished child health agenda includes tackling stunting rates as high as 30 per cent and related risks.
In 2017, children in Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CEE/CIS) will face continued risks related to armed conflicts, economic stagnation and political and social instability. In eastern Ukraine, children are facing the consequences of a three-year conflict that is overwhelming social services and protection systems. In Turkey, unprecedented numbers of refugee, migrant and other highly vulnerable children are challenging the capacities of government services.

Programme purpose: The programmes supported by the International Federation in Armenia are aligned with the Global Agenda goals to reduce the number of deaths, injuries, and impact from disasters; to reduce the number of deaths, illnesses and impact from diseases and public health emergencies; to increase local community, civil society and Red Cross Red Crescent capacity to address the most urgent situations of vulnerability; and to reduce intolerance, discrimination and social exclusion and promote respect for diversity …
The Armenian Red Cross has changed in many ways in the past nineteen years that the International Federation has been engaged. Via access to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement's global network it has progressed, developing a number of characteristics that make it a better supporter of vulnerable people, including a country-wide network of regional and community branches; experienced, enthusiastic and committed staff and volunteers; improved infrastructure; and stronger links with governmental agencies, local and international organizations.
