UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, Hope
UNICEF begun its operations in Uganda in the early 1960s. Our work is guided by the Convention on the Rights of the Child and strives to establish children's rights as enduring ethical principles and international standards of behavior towards children.
Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) is at the core of UNICEF’s mandate. UNICEF has a zero-tolerance policy for sexual exploitation and abuse perpetrated by UNICEF personnel and by personnel and sub-contractors of UNICEF Implementing Partners. SEA constitutes the most serious breach of accountability by the humanitarian sector. Consequently, the PSEA is distinctly linked to accountability to affected populations (AAP), with a high profile and a strong set of specific commitments. In December 2018, under the IASC Championship of UNICEF Executive Director, the IASC Principals laid out three main priorities to prevent and respond to SEA, namely: 1) safe and accessible reporting that is gender and child sensitive; 2) quality SEA survivor assistance; and 3) enhanced accountability, including through prompt and respectful investigations.
UNICEF is also committed to work in collaboration with other UN agencies in implementing the Strategy of the Secretary-General's Bulletin on Special Measures for Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse (ST/SGB/2003/13); the IASC Plan for Accelerating Protection from SEA in humanitarian response and in rolling out the UN Victim Assistance Protocol, Technical Note and Training Package which UNICEF is leading globally. The UN Common Assessment tool for Implementing Partners to assess SEA risks amongst partners is being rolled out.
UNICEF has been at the forefront of prevention and response to GBV and SEA in humanitarian and development settings.
