UNICEF – in partnership with Gavi and WHO – is also helping low- and lower-middle-income countries prepare to receive COVID-19 vaccines in 2021
Statement by UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore
UNICEF Canada welcomes the Government of Canada’s new contributions to fight the global pandemic
In high-income countries, only 2 per cent of fiscal stimulus was allocated specifically to support children during the first wave of COVID-19; a better balance of spending that provides more direct support to children is urgently needed
UNICEF kickstarts discussions with over 350 logistics organizations to step up delivery plans for eventual COVID-19 vaccines
Children and adolescents account for 1 in 9 of reported COVID-19 infections, according to new analysis released ahead of World Children’s Day
New report looks at national education responses to COVID-19 including lost learning; remote learning support for students, parents and teachers; school reopening plans; health protocols; and financing
The pre-COVID-19 analysis reveals that 356 million children struggle to survive on less than $1.90 a day, two-thirds of them in sub-Saharan Africa
Initial preparatory work – in partnership with Gavi and WHO – will include purchasing boxes for the safe disposal of syringes and mapping out cold chain equipment to ensure delivery of effective vaccines
UNICEF Canada welcomes the Government of Canada’s commitment to ensure that access to the eventual COVID-19 vaccine is equitable and available to all, including the highest risk populations world-wide, regardless of income level.
