Since 1949 The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has been working to promote the rights of children and women throughout most of the provinces in Afghanistan. The work of UNICEF encompasses the provision of basic services, including education, health, protection, water and sanitation to those who are most in need. In 2001, UNICEF became the Government’s leading partner in the reconstruction of the education sector. Key areas of expertise include education, health and nutrition, wash, child protection, polio eradication and emergency response.
