„Children 's Week is already traditionally celebrated all over Republic of Srpska.

Goal  of the manifestation is promotion of the rights of the child, improvement of social care for children and strengthening responsibility of all subjects of protection.

This year Children's Week is celebrated from October 1. to 7. Under the common slogan „Family-where life begins and love never ceases".

According to the Program, which was adopted by the Minister of Health and Social Protection, by numerous activities and manifestations at the level of Republic of Srpska, local communities and in institutions for children, it is pointed to the importance of recognizing the needs of children in different periods of their growing up, whereby family has a special role as primary and natural environment that provides security and stability, love and respect necessary for  proper growth and development of each child.

This year, a new quality in the celebration of Children's Week is the central manifestation which additionally points to the importance of continuous and coordinated cooperation of all subjects of protection, primarily in the area of prevention but also continuous monitoring of implementation of the Convention, and the impact that legislation and defined policies have on children, their rights and interests.
