Media partnerships provide powerful opportunities for children to voice their opinions and to be heard. Partnerships with organizations such as Prix Jeunesse, which keeps quality children's programming at the heart of its work, are very important to UNICEF. Working at various forums, UNICEF continues to develop broadcasting partnerships to build on the current programming environment for children and to help satisfy the growing need networks have for advice on content about social issues affecting children.
