Annual Report 2020
An in-depth overview of UNICEF Pakistan's activities in 2020
As COVID-19 swept around the world in early 2020, Pakistan reported its first case on 26 February. The pandemic had severe impacts on services for children across Pakistan and required us to refocus our programming.
In addition to building on the progress made during the current country programme, we worked closely with counterparts in government, civil society and the donor community to maintain essential services, while ensuring the safety of service providers and users alike. We procured essential supplies including personal protective equipment to support Pakistan's COVId-19 response, and developed innovative communication tools to dispel rumors and educate the public about COVID-19.
This annual report for 2020 details the successes and the challenges that we experienced during the year, as well as the priorities for the year ahead.
