Overall, 2014 was a year of progress towards meeting global goals for reducing child mortality. Under-five mortality has declined at a faster rate than at any other time during the past two decades.


An AIDS-free generation is within reach: a generation in which children are born free of HIV and remain so into adulthood, and children living with HIV have access to care and treatment.



Significant progress has been made toward improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for children and their families.


Optimal nutrition lays the foundation for lifelong health, learning, and economic and social performance; it is one of the most important investments in realizing the rights of every child.


Following major improvements between 2000 and 2007, global progress has stalled both in school enrolment and the number of out-of-school children. 


UNICEF’s integrated approach to child protection in 2014 addressed the full spectrum of risk factors in the lives of children and their families, within both development and humanitarian contexts.


UNICEF works on social inclusion on behalf of the poorest and most marginalized children to assist countries in understanding child poverty and exclusion and in developing effective responses.



From deadly natural disasters to brutal conflicts and fast-spreading epidemics, children across the world are facing a changing and increasingly complex humanitarian environment.


An overview of the progress made in implementing the institutional and programmatic components of the UNICEF Gender Action Plan during 2014.
