What results will the strategic plan help UNICEF achieve for children?
The overarching goal of the UNICEF Strategic Plan 2018–2021 is to drive results for the most disadvantaged children and young people. Supported by 8 change strategies and tied to 25 results areas, the Strategic Plan establishes 5 goal areas. These goal areas span a child’s life cycle, encompassing antenatal care, through infancy, childhood and adolescence, giving priority to the most disadvantaged children. Equity for children is both a stand-alone goal and a cross-cutting priority. The results areas target the key barriers that hold children and young people back, deny them the agency to shape their destinies and prevent them from accessing critical services that can save their lives and help them fulfil their potential.
