The lack of empirical data on child protection issues makes it difficult to assess the magnitude of children’s vulnerability in the Maldives. UNICEF Maldives supported the government by increasing accessibility to information, enabling reporting of cases of violence against children from remote islands in the country. UNICEF Maldives created a mobile application that is linked to the “Call Centre” and the Maldives Child Protection Database. The information from both the calls and SMS, is centrally captured, analyzed and used for timely response and action, thus enabling the social workers to respond to cases in a timely manner. The Call Center has been established and Family and Children Service centers in all 19 atolls have been linked to a central database.
