Core Resources for Results (RR) plays a key role for all UNICEF programmes, from nutrition to education, health, early childhood development, child protection, WASH, and social protection as well as supporting the emergency response to the pandemic.

Given the world’s renewed focus on immunization, the theme of the 2020 Core Resources for Results report is Immunization. This report focuses on the role and impact of RR for immunization, both historically and in 2020. In “Stories from the field”, we showcase UNICEF’s efforts to expand immunization expertise, cold chains, and innovative approaches through several countries to increase vaccination rates of the world’s children.

For a full collection of stories from the field demonstrating UNICEF’s impact across all programme areas and regions, including how we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, please contact us at
