Indonesia has signed a new agreement with the UN children's agency UNICEF to improve the living standards of children throughout the archipelago.
The 125 million dollar project will improve the mother and child health and education in 2008. In 2008, the project will promote proper sanitation for children. The project will cover 130 new schools in Indonesia's Aceh province, the area worst hit by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. UNICEF has also signed an agreement with government for promoting HIV/AIDS education, especially in the eastern Papua region, where the disease is most widespread.
