July 13 1998

The UNICEF launched its annual 1998 Progress of Nations report on Wednesday, July 8, in Sanaa. The report, which is launched from a different country every year, is ‘a combination of statistical data, analysis of trends, and explanation of principles,’ said a statement made by the UNICEF Regional Director.
UNICEF activities in health, education and social projects have increased in Yemen – from a budget of $2.3 million in 1996 to $5 million this year. It is currently working to formulate an expanded US$ 52 million project, to be financed by a soft loan from the World Bank.
