In 2022, UNICEF saw important results for children amidst COVID–19 recovery, conflicts and climate change. With an unwavering commitment, UNICEF remained steadfast in achieving the rights of all children, thanks to record-breaking support from donors and partners. Flexible funding from public and private partners was particularly instrumental in contributing to a lasting impact on millions of children, including adolescents, and their families.

UNICEF’s 2022 Global Annual Results Report for Goal Area 1 presents results on children and their communities in four interconnected programmes – health, nutrition, HIV and AIDS, and early childhood development.

Guided by UNICEF’s Strategic Plan, 2022-2025, the report tracks progress across eight result areas:

-             Strengthening primary health care and high-impact health interventions

-             Immunization services as a part of primary health care

-             Fast-track the end of HIV and AIDS

-             Health and development in early childhood and adolescence

-             Mental health and psychosocial well-being

-             Nutrition in early childhood

-             Nutrition of adolescents and women, and

-             Early detection and treatment of malnutrition

Across more than 190 countries and territories, these programmes aim to ensure that every child not only survives but also thrives, and that no one is left behind.
