The JRP 2019, launched in Geneva on Friday, contains a dedicated objective for the strengthening of the child protection system in the camps to prevent such risks, according to an official in Dhaka. Steps to strengthen the child protection system will be taken in coordination with the Department of Social Services (DSS), and will include improvement to the quality of government-led service delivery, the official added. Children represent 55 %of all Rohingyas in the camps, and 343,206 are in need of immediate child protection assistance, according to the JRP. Rohingya children are experiencing high levels of distress after witnessing extreme violence in Myanmar, as well as being exposed to continued stressful living conditions. The JRP 2019 will be the vehicle for mobilizing critically needed support for the humanitarian response for the Rohingyas, they added.
