We have all seen the devastating effects of COVID-19 around the world. In places like India, where cases have risen dramatically, hospitals are overwhelmed, and oxygen supplies are running out. And when one country is at risk, we’re all at risk.
No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Play your part and help UNICEF deliver 2 billion vaccines, as well as millions of treatments around the world this year. Because we’ll only ever be safe, if we’re all safe.
Every year, UNICEF vaccinates half the world’s children against preventable disease. Now, we’re ensuring no one is left behind in the race to vaccinate everyone against COVID-19.
UNICEF’s goal is to ensure health workers, teachers, social workers and the most vulnerable in every country – not just the wealthier ones – are protected, and patients get the urgent medical supplies and oxygen they need.
We need your help to deliver 2 billion vaccines, 5.6 million tests and 5.5 million treatments around the world this year. Join us for the biggest health and logistics project in history.
UNICEF is the only global organisation equipped to deliver an operation of this size. We are the world’s largest vaccine buyer. We have more than 70 years’ experience and are on the ground in more than 190 countries. We help vaccinate almost half the world’s children against preventable diseases. We travel to some of the most remote places on earth to deliver nearly 2 billion doses of life-saving vaccines every year. That’s why we’re leading the way in this huge endeavour.
As part of The COVAX Facility, UNICEF is leading the biggest health and logistics operation in history to deliver 2 billion COVID-19 vaccines around the world.
As well as buying and delivering vaccines, we’re also providing 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits to help beat this pandemic.
COVAX is a global alliance that enables low-and middle-income countries to access COVID-19 vaccines. 190 countries have signed up – that’s nearly every country on the planet. COVAX is led by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, WHO and CEPI.
Vaccines are being prioritised for frontline health and social workers, teachers and high-risk groups.
Protecting health workers, social workers and teachers means easing pressure on overwhelmed health systems, ensuring children are protected from harm and getting children back to school. This is how we can – and must – stop the pandemic from becoming a lasting crisis, especially for the world's most vulnerable children.
UNICEF works to ensure every child survives and thrives – no matter who they are or where they live. And children are only safe if everyone they rely on is safe. This is why we’re on a mission to protect key workers in every country around the world.
COVID-19 has already put progress for children globally back 25 years. We must do everything we can to ensure millions of children don’t miss out on routine vaccinations, basic healthcare and education.
Together, we can end this global pandemic.
