Latest news, updates and guidance you can trust

Around the world as COVID-19 cases increase, so do the needs of children and their families. UNICEF is working to slow the spread of COVID-19 and minimize the impact on children worldwide by delivering life-saving health supplies, building water and handwashing facilities, and keeping kids connected to education and protection.

UNICEF is also leading global efforts in the world’s largest and fastest ever procurement and supply of vaccines. We are working to ensure all countries that are part of the COVID-19 Vaccine Global Access Facility (COVAX), including 92 low- and lower middle-income countries, have equitable access to 2 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines by the end of 2021.

UNICEF is committed to promoting facts over fear. We are working with global experts to constantly provide you with current, accurate information, resources and guidance and we invite you to visit this page often for the latest updates on our fight against COVID-19.
