UNICEF Kazakhstan

The United Nations Children’s Fund in Kazakhstan

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is on the ground in over 150 countries and territories to help children survive and thrive, from early childhood through adolescence. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

UNICEF is supporting the Government of Kazakhstan, in piloting of several local and national projects. Kazakhstan is a middle-income country but there are serious challenges in terms of narrowing the gap between the wellbeing of children of urban and rural areas, as nearly 40 per cent of the population live in rural areas. Kazakhstan has been doing well in economic reforms, but the outreach of social programs remains poor. UNICEF support to Kazakhstan is delivered over a wide spectrum, through four central program areas: Child Health and Development; Child Protection; Young People’s Health and Development, HIV/AIDS; and, Social Policy Development and Participatory Governance.
