UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation focusing on children and child rights, with a presence in more than 190 countries and territories. We work with local communities, partners and governments to ensure every child’s rights to survive and thrive are upheld. We support governments to build and equip health systems, train health workers and provide food and clean water, so every child can be as healthy as possible. UNICEF is also the world’s largest distributer of vaccines to the developing world, protecting millions of children against death from preventable diseases. We support families and communities to care for children and protect them against exploitation and abuse, fulfilling their right to a childhood. We aim to involve children at every level of decision-making, from school councils to international summits, upholding their right to be heard.
Every child has the right to a voice on all matters that affect them and to have their views taken seriously.
