The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)

UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. With the belief that it is wrong for a child to suffer from a preventable illness, UNICEF has been a leader in polio eradication and immunization efforts. Through its efforts with WHO and partners, more than 106 million children were vaccinated in 2008 and global immunization rates increased to their highest level ever. UNICEF continues its work to support global immunization efforts with its partners to provide each child with an equal chance at life.
