The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)

The United Nations Children’s Fund works to protect the rights, safety, and health of children everywhere. As an implementing partner, UNICEF reaches almost half of the world’s children with lifesaving vaccines through on-the-ground administration and investments in health system infrastructure. Globally, UNICEF has also been a leader in polio eradication campaigns in over 100 countries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, UNICEF has played an essential role in delivering vaccines to low and middle-income countries around the world. 

Shot@Life champions advocate for U.S. federal funding for UNICEF. Shot@Life also raises public awareness about UNICEF vaccination campaigns and helps fund the delivery of vaccines to children around the world.
