The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every
child, everywhere, in everything the organization does in programs, in advocacy
and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and
excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights
into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to
survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias
or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life in
its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions her or his
rights are violated.
There is growing evidence that investing in the
health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens
addressing inequity not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil
their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of
countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress
towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal
mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child,
while also supporting the equitable development of nation.
