UNICEF is working closely with governments, UN organizations and other partners through the UN Country Teams and other partners to arm families with the knowledge and practices they need to protect themselves and their birds from avian influenza and to be ready to respond to the emergence of a pandemic.

UNICEF is harnessing its extensive on-the-ground networks to deliver critical life-saving messages.

UNICEF’s strengths in communication and social mobilization, and its capacity for action at community level are the assets we bring to this concerted UN operation.
