Global Projects
In addition to the ‘All for Children’ project, H&M has supported several other projects through its partnership with UNICEF.

Cambodia
Since 2004, H&M has been supporting UNICEF’s HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care programme in Cambodia, one of the countries where H&M’s clothes are produced. The programme aims to reduce the transmission of HIV among young people and high-risk groups as well as reducing the impact of the epidemic on children and their families. The project includes activities such as 'Program delivery for children' health promotion sessions, a national HIV hotline and HIV testing services.

Some of the project activities are especially targeted at young women in the garment industry, which is one of the high-risk groups identified in the programme. H&M has used its access to the factories to help UNICEF reach young female garment workers.  In this way H&M can also raise awareness among our suppliers that they have a role to play in ensuring the health of their workers.

The HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care programme is a pilot project and will conclude in 2010.

Uzbekistan
Between 2008 and 2009, H&M supported a project run by UNICEF in Uzbekistan to improve the situation of children and help prevent child labour in the cotton industry. The project purpose - to raise public awareness of the effects of child labour and to develop national child protection strategies.
