UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working  for children and their rights. We work with families, local communities, partners and governments in 191 countries to help every child realise their full potential. We provide health care, nutrition and education. We protect children affected by war, natural disasters and HIV/AIDS.

UNICEF works in the UK to champion children’s rights, to win support and raise money for our work with children worldwide. UNICEF UK was established in 1956 and is one of 36 UNICEF National Committees based in industrialised countries.

UNICEF is not funded by the UN. Instead, we rely entirely on voluntary donations from individuals, governments, trusts, corporations and UNICEF groups.

What is UNICEF?

UNICEF is the United Nations Children’s Fund.

Established in 1946 by the United Nations to meet the emergency needs of children in post-war Europe and China, by 1950 UNICEF’s mandate was broadened to address the long-term needs of children and mothers in developing countries everywhere.

In 1953, UNICEF became a permanent part of the United Nations.

Internationally, UNICEF is what is known as an intergovernmental organisation (IGO). This means that we work in formal partnerships with governments, and have greater access to and influence with those governments on programmes for children.

What does UNICEF do?

UNICEF is the only global organisation working specifically for children and children’s rights. We work with local communities and governments in more than 160 countries to help every child reach their full potential through long term and emergency work on health care, education and protection for children at risk.

What are UNICEF’s key areas of work?

UNICEF commits its resources to achieving results for children in five priority areas:

* giving girls and boys equal learning opportunities
* providing educational supplies
* rebuilding education systems in crisis situations

* preventing HIV infection in young people ages 10 to 24
* preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV
* supporting children, some orphans, made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS

* working to make vaccinations a routine part of every child’s life
* to help the 30 million unimmunised infants in danger from preventable diseases (such as measles, polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, tuberculosis and tetanus)
* supporting national immunization campaigns and improved distribution of vaccines

* supplying food, water, sanitation and health care to young people caught in humanitarian emergencies
* reuniting parents with their children when they’ve been separated
* focusing on psycho-social support for traumatized children

* ensuring that children receive the micronutrients they need to help prevent serious health problems
* focuses on proper nourishment for mothers, so nourishment starts before birth
* protecting infants and children from physical and mental disabilities caused by iodine deficiency (the world’s single greatest cause of preventable brain damage)
