2016 Annual Results Reports

UNICEF’s Annual Results Reports 2016 take stock of the organization’s results at the global, regional and country levels. Based on the seven outcome sectors and two cross-cutting areas of the Strategic Plan 2014–2017, the reports cover health; HIV and AIDS; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); nutrition; education; child protection; social inclusion; humanitarian action; and gender. They align the results achieved by UNICEF in 2016 with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and set out the proposed workplans for delivering on shared commitments to advance children’s rights and equity. The reports also serve to highlight the achievements made possible by the contribution of loosely earmarked thematic funding received from partners.

HEALTH



In the health sector in 2016, UNICEF remained committed to the improved and equitable use of high-impact maternal and child health interventions from pregnancy to adolescence, and the promotion of healthy behaviours.


HIV and AIDS  




In many ways, 2016 was a transitional year for the global response to HIV. Some changes and developments were unequivocally positive, while the impact of others remains uncertain.

 

WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE




In 2016, UNICEF launched a new global strategy that will guide its efforts to meet Sustainable Development Goal 6 on WASH and contribute to the sustainable development agenda overall.


NUTRITION




While child malnutrition remains a persistent problem in every region, countries have made substantial progress in reducing malnutrition over the past decade – including in 2016 – with support from UNICEF and its partners.


EDUCATION




Throughout 2016, UNICEF maintained its commitment to improve learning outcomes, increase school access for all children and promote quality teaching, quality learning and positive learning environments 


CHILD PROTECTION  




UNICEF and its partners contributed to the protection of children from violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect in 2016, addressing the impact of rights violations on children and the communities in which they live.


SOCIAL INCLUSION




UNICEF’s social inclusion interventions in 2016 helped countries make progress on advancing the right of every child to grow up free from poverty, bias and discrimination, and gain access to needed services, information and support.


HUMANITARIAN ACTION

 




In 2016, UNICEF and partners responded to 344 humanitarian situations of varying scale in 108 countries – the largest number of situations and countries recorded since tracking began more than a decade ago.


GENDER EQUALITY




UNICEF remained well positioned in 2016 to foster gender-equitable outcomes for children as a catalyst to a more just world – helping girls and boys realize their full potential and helping societies make progress on gender equality.
