Bangladesh has been elected as a member, and Vice President, of the executive board of Unicef for this year, according to a message received from New York.

The announcement came at the Executive Board of Unicef’s first regular session of 2019 at the UN on Tuesday.

Unicef's Executive Director Henrietta Fore, and the newly-elected President of Unicef's Executive Board, Permanent Representative of Sudan to the UN Omer Dahab Fadl Mohamed, addressed the opening session.

Speaking at the session, Permanent Representative (PR) of Bangladesh to the UN Ambassador Masud Bin Momen said that Bangladesh has made considerable progress in protecting and promoting child rights.

He said: "Major achievements include: reducing child mortality and malnutrition, increasing primary school enrolment, distributing free textbooks on the first day of the year, using a child-focused expenditure tracking, and implementing the National Action plan to control repression against children and women." 

Mentioning Unicef's research on Bangladesh’s government's success in the child-related sector, Ambassador Masud   said: "Unicef's study reveals that the government's investment in social safety net programs, adolescent health, and opportunities for secondary education for girls helped positively towards ending child marriage."

He praised the excellent support provided by Unicef to Bangladesh’s government, and the people of Bangladesh, for the traumatized and forcibly-displaced Rohingya women and children.

The PR stressed Unicef's role in reducing disparities between children of under-developed and children of developed countries.

 In this regard, he praised the commencement of the Unicef initiative entitled “Generation Unlimited” and hopes the initiative grows.
