UNICEF Ghana Newsletter
January - March 2022
In the first three months of 2022, our UNICEF Team in Ghana focused on the country’s key development priorities, in particular those impacting the most vulnerable and marginalized children, including adolescents, youth and their families. Our work spanned from supporting the COVID-19 and yellow fever immunization campaigns and further arrivals of vaccines through the COVAX Facility, to our participation in the Second Global Disability Summit. We also sought to provide solutions to digitally connect children and youth across Ghana. During this quarter, we - alongside other UN agencies - supported the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) in emergency responses, including after the explosion that devastated the Appiate community in the Western Region. Our team based in our Field Office in Tamale has also been assessing the situation in border areas and strengthening the resilience of institutions and communities.
These efforts, and many others, could only be achieved through our solid and strategic partnership with you: The Government of Ghana, the United Nations System, Development Partners, private sector, civil society, non-governmental organizations, academia, the media, youth, and children. This year, UNICEF marks 40 years of operations in Ghana. Throughout this time, we have consistently worked with government and partners to reach every child. Over the span of the four decades, UNICEF’s priority focus areas have been adjusted. However, our mandate remains consistent: to respect and uphold the rights of every child, including adolescents, throughout Ghana. We are delighted to continue this journey in partnership with you
