The relationship between the European Union and UNICEF,
the United Nations Children’s Fund, has deepened in recent years, as the EU has joined forces with UNICEF to secure the highest possible quality of life for children the world over.
“We have a privileged relationship both ways,” says UNICEF
Director of Programmes Dr. Nicholas Alipui, “in which we can bring a lot of our field expertise and global outreach to the policy and programme and humanitarian work that they do, and we can benefit from their new focus on human rights and the rights of children”.
Both the EU & UNICEF are working towards all children having access to and enjoying the right to education, adequate nutrition, safe water and sanitation and health. Other priorities include protection from discrimination, exploitation, violence and abuse.
