Children, youth and ageing persons

In 1995, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) pursued two major priorities: continuing support for its country programmes to help women and children, with particular focus on achieving in as many countries as possible the middecade goals for children and development set by the World Summit for Children in 1990; and strengthening UNICEF’s management, accountability, cost-effectiveness and transparency. The Fund provided assistance totalling $804 million to developing countries and countries in transition to market economies in the areas of child health, planning, advocacy and programme support, education, water supply and sanitation, and nutrition. One quarter of the Fund’s allocations went to emergency operations. New strategies were developed and adopted during the year for UNICEF programmes in health, basic education, and water and environmental sanitation.
