One Team for Every Child
When it comes to children, there can only be #OneTeam. Join UNICEF Viet Nam and be part of the change to get childhood #BackOnTrack
This World Children’s Day, we have a great opportunity to come together as #OneTeam to achieve results for every child in Viet Nam.
Everyone – decision-makers, businesses, individuals, schools and communities – has a role to play when it comes to children. A collective commitment is key to address the widening disparities and critical challenges faced by children.
We must act as #OneTeam to ensure no child is left behind as Viet Nam recovers from the impacts of COVID-19, build resilience to future shocks and accelerate human capital development.
Watch our campaign videos and get inspired to be part of this team for children!

Situation of children
Viet Nam has made tremendous progress for its 27 million children over the past several decades. But millions of children – especially migrants, children with disabilities, and from ethnic communities – still face significant and widening disparities.
Together, we must fight multidimensional poverty and malnutrition, help catch up on routine vaccinations, build transferable skills and address mental health issues that are affecting children in Viet Nam.
