Zainab Alert launched on Pakistan Citizen's Portal
The "Zainab Alert” has been launched on the Pakistan Citizen’s Portal. This is a commendable effort on the part of the federal government to unify and strengthen efforts to track and trace missing children and child abuse cases in Pakistan, following the recent enactment of the Zainab Alert, Response and Recovery Act in March 2020. The Zainab Alert system will activate the state machinery at relevant regional and district levels for effective emergency response and recovery of missing children. Through integration with the Pakistan Citizen’s Portal, the alert mechanism will be instantly available to 3 million registered users.
