Annual Results Reports 2016

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. The reports also highlight the achievements made possible by the contribution of loosely earmarked Thematic Funding received from partners.


UNICEF-assisted results for children in 190 countries and territories could not be achieved without the crucial partnerships with public-sector partners: governments, UN agencies, international financial institutions and global programme partnerships as well as innovative financial mechanisms. These pages provide information about UNICEF public-sector partners, including highlights of the results achieved together and information on immediate needs and ways in which to partner with UNICEF in furthering children's rights.
