Child Survival

UNICEF/NYHQ2012-2022/NOAH FRIEDMAN-RUDOVSKY

UNICEF has helped save more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization.

UNICEF works in more than 190 countries and territories to save and protect children. UNICEF's lifesaving interventions and programs around the world have helped reduce the number of deaths among children under the age of 5 by more than 50% since 1990. But there is much more to be done: Thousands of small children die every day because they lack proper nutrition, safe drinking water, affordable vaccines and other basic necessities. 

All children have the right to survive and thrive. With your support, UNICEF will continue to provide vulnerable children around the world with the support and services they need to reach their full potential.
