UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
UNICEF aims to ensure that every child is protected from violence, abuse and exploitation across development and humanitarian contexts. Ensuring that all children are protected is essential to ensuring children’s rights to survival, growth and development and is central to UNICEF work. UNICEF collaborates with diverse partners, invests in data and evidence, and builds child protection systems for prevention and response. Worldwide, 120 UNICEF country offices support national efforts to strengthen national child protection systems to prevent and respond to violence against children, strengthen access to justice for children, prevent family-child separation and strengthen alternative family-based care, strengthen the social service workforce for child protection and to address the rights and needs of children on the move. Documenting these efforts is critical for developing a better understanding of scope and reach of UNICEF efforts to strengthen child protection systems.
