image of Yearbook of the United Nations 2004
This unique publication, the fifty-eighth volume of the Yearbook of the United Nations, chronicles all the major activities undertaken in the organization in the year 2004. In an increasingly complex international environment, the United Nations addressed, during the year, the many peace and security challenges it faced, especially the threats posed by international terrorism, conflict situations and the potential proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The United Nations also sought solutions to such economics and social problems as poverty, hunger, unsafe drinking water, environmental degradation and endemic and infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, by working to implement the Millennium Development Goals.

Children, youth and ageing persons

In 2004, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) continued to work with diverse partners to ensure that children worldwide were given the best start in life—immunization against vaccine preventable diseases; accurate information about HIV/AIDS prevention; a quality primary school education; and protection from harm, abuse, violence and discrimination, including during times of war and in emergencies.
