UNICEF in Latin America and the Caribbean
Latin America and the Caribbean is considered the most unequal region in the world.
While there have been notable development leaps that have improved the lives of some children, there remain staggering gaps that continue to leave millions of other children and their families at risk.
Since the rights of children are not yet an integral part of the development agenda, and investment in children is still not usually a priority, a fundamental part of UNICEF work in Latin America and the Caribbean includes policy advocacy and partnerships to protect and promote children’s rights, and to put children at the center of public policy, laws and budgets.
