Our impact in 2018: a snapshot of our results for children
UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories, in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the children who are most at risk and most in need.
In 2018, UNICEF Australia helped support children affected by devastating wars, natural disasters and crises around the world, providing urgent life-saving support.
Through our long-term international development programs, we helped give some of the most vulnerable children in our region a fair chance in life by improving access to and quality of healthcare, education, clean water and sanitation, and protection from violence, abuse and neglect.
Closer to home, our advocacy efforts influenced multiple pieces of legislation which will have wide-ranging positive impacts for children in Australia and our wider region.
