Mission and objectives

Working in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child, UNICEF has spent 70 years improving the lives of children and their families. UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere. In all of its work, UNICEF takes a life-cycle based approach, recognizing the particular importance of early childhood development and adolescence. UNICEF programmes focus on the most disadvantaged children, including those living in fragile contexts, those with disabilities, those who are affected by rapid urbanization and those affected by environmental degradation. UNICEF was created with a distinct purpose in mind: to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child's path. We advocate for measures to give children the best start in life because proper care at the youngest age forms the most robust foundation for a person's future. We promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum – because it benefits all children, both girls and boys. Girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens, and better parents to their own children. We act so that all children are immunized against common childhood diseases, and are well nourished: no child should suffer or die from a preventable illness. We work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people because it is right to keep them from harm and enable them to protect others. We help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS to live their lives with dignity. We are UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund.

Context

The national health system is fragmented, and 80 per cent of hospitals are privately owned. Primary health care is not prioritized: 71% of state funding is allocated to secondary and tertiary care. The national health system has been heavily impacted by the crises and faces major financial and operational challenges. Forty per cent of doctors have left the country, including specialists in maternal and new-born care. One in three children, irrespective of nationality, does not receive the required three doses of DPT vaccine. Lebanon is experiencing a growing triple burden of malnutrition (stunting, micronutrient deficiencies, overweight and obesity) among children and adolescents and high rates of undernutrition among women. Stunting prevalence is seven per cent among Lebanese children 6-59 months, while it is 25% among Syrian refugees in informal settlements, an increase from 17 per cent in 2013. In camps hosting Palestinian populations, the prevalence of acute malnutrition among children under 5 years is 4 per cent versus 1.8 per cent among Lebanese. Acute malnutrition among pregnant and lactating women is also highest in Palestinian camps (9.5%) and Syrian refugees in settlements (8%). Over 40% of women at reproductive age and children 6-59 months are affected by anaemia. A study on children aged 12-18 years found a high prevalence of over-weight (30%) and obesity (20%). 94% of the children aged 6-23 months are not fed the minimum diets they need to grow and develop healthy and 70 per cent of children under 6 months are not exclusively breastfed. UNICEF with the worsening situation, continues to provide support to Ministry of Public Health, in providing all Nutrition supplies for free to all primary health care centers and to Nutrition partners in addition to providing technical support such as evidence generation, capacity building and strengthening quality implementation for nutrition services across the country.
