Since 1999, UNICEF and its partners have immunized millions of women all over the globe.

Through the combined efforts of UNICEF and its partners, the disease has been completely eradicated in some four dozen countries, among them Mozambique, China, Turkey, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Laos.

Most recently, UNICEF and its partners, including Kiwanis International, have successfully eliminated the disease in Ethiopia, Haiti, the Philippines, Kenya, Chad and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

  • Afghanistan
  • Angola
  • Central African Republic
  • Guinea
  • Mali
  • Nigeria
  • Pakistan
  • Papua New Guinea
  • Somalia
  • South Sudan
