For every child, an advocate

UNICEF and China have a long history of collaboration. In 1947, China became the first country in Asia to welcome a partnership with UNICEF, and our first programme provided emergency relief services to children. China has the second-largest child population: 14% of the world’s children. It’s had progress recently, advancing education and health rights, promoting gender equality and reducing poverty. China has reduced its under-five mortality rate by 80% since 1990. For more information, please visit our webpage:
