Since the dawn of democracy in South Africa, UNICEF has been working to ensure that no child is left behind and that every child’s right to survive and thrive is prioritised. Working with Government, the corporate sector, civil society, media, research institutions and other partners, a key objective is to reduce deep-seated inequities and eliminate widespread child poverty while scaling-up innovative programs with holistic results for children, their families and their communities. The focus is on the critical areas for a child’s well-being including health, education, protection while addressing violence, youth unemployment, HIV as well as health and mental development challenges.
