United Nations Children's Fund
Active in more than 190 countries and territories, UNICEF upholds the Convention on the Rights of the Child and and works for the Millenium Development Goals.
UNICEF has country and regional offices mobilizing resources and strengthening international cooperation to achieve its Medium-Term Strategic Plan 2006-2013 targets on Child Survival and Development, Basic Education and Gender Equality, HIV / AIDS and Children, Child Protection, Policy Advocacy and Partnerships.
It works to improve water supply and sanitation facilities in schools and communities, and promote safe hygiene practices. In emergencies it provides relief to communities and nations threatened by water supply disruption and disease. UNICEF programs have also been designed to address a specific MDG Goal: halve by 2015 the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe water and basic sanitation.
