As a Government
UNICEF in Pakistan depends entirely on voluntary contributions for development and humanitarian action from a range of donors. In addition to regular resources, government donors are able to support UNICEF’s work in Pakistan through different funding options:
Donors can show their commitment to the Millennium Development Goals by supporting UNICEF’s five global priority areas: Early Childhood Development, Immunisation Plus, Primary Education, Child Protection and the prevention of the spread of HIV and AIDS.
UNICEF is running a five year regular country programme (2004–2008) in all four provinces of Pakistan. In 2006, action is focused on:
• Maternal and Child Health Care – Emergency Obstetric Care, Immunisation Plus, Child Survival and Development (US$ 12 million required in Other Resources)
• Primary Education – girls’ education, improving teaching and learning (US$ 1,5 million required in Other Resources)
• Water and sanitation: improving water quality, expanding sanitation coverage in schools and communities, promoting community hygiene (US$ 500,000 required in Other Resources).
• Child Protection: policy development, services for abused, trafficked or exploited children, juvenile justice, capacity building of service providers, empowerment of adolescents, including life skills training and prevention of HIV and AIDS (US$ 1,000,000 required in Other Resources).
Generic or specific donor proposals are available upon request.
UNICEF is part of the Earthquake Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Authority-UN Early Recovery Plan addressing the aftermath of the October 2005 earthquake.

UNICEF is seeking funding for the following sectors:
• Health & Nutrition: primary health care and hospital services, nutritional surveys (US$ 17.5 million)
• Water and sanitation: safe drinking water, latrines, hygiene education in communities and schools (US$ 39.3 million)
