During 1996, the year of its fiftieth anniversary, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) continued to focus on improving the situation of children worldwide. In December, the General Assembly commended the Fund for its contribution in promoting child survival, development and protection. A new statement on the mission of UNICEF was adopted by the Executive Board in January, sending out a strong message of support and consensus on the core of the organization’s work in the year of its anniversary.
