The security situation in Ivory Coast has stabilised since fighting ceased in 2011, but Save the Children continues to play an important role in the reconstruction and reconciliation of the country.
We're working to improve child protection systems, and support communities to respond to the abuse and exploitation of children. Our teams are also helping to improve the quality of schools and teaching to ensure that children are able to learn.
In healthcare, we're focusing on improving nutrition and medical care for newborn babies, children under five years old and their mothers. Our teams are providing vital equipment to health centres, training health workers and providing life-saving advice to mothers.
