Profiles and needs of caregivers and children on the move in Tunisia

Tunisia hosts more than 6,000 refugees and asylum seekers and an estimated 59,000 foreign residents. This snapshot focuses on the caregivers among this population, and sheds light on the profiles of refugee and migrant caregivers in Tunisia; the parental or other relationships and care arrangements with the children under their care; their level of access to, and needs for, assistance and services related to the children under their care; as well as their perception of the protection risks faced by children on the move.

This snapshot is produced as part of a research partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) focusing on children and youth on the move along the Central Mediterranean Route. An accompanying snapshot on Sudan can be found at this link.
