Core Resources for Results (RR) is essentially funding without restrictions, to be used flexibly for children wherever and whenever the need is greatest.

With RR, UNICEF is able to pioneer new ideas for children; work from birth through adolescence; scale up proven solutions globally; prepare and respond rapidly in emergencies, and contribute to rebuilding efforts; and most importantly given our sustained presence across 190 countries around the world, achieve the greatest impact for children.

The 2020 Core Resources for Results (RR) Report focuses on the role and impact of RR for immunization, showcasing UNICEF’s efforts to expand immunization expertise, cold chains, and innovative approaches through several countries to increase vaccination rates of the world’s children through a series of stories from the field. 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
