V. Background Information

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 more children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. Therefore, 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 nations.
Together with its partners, UNICEF works in190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.

In all of its work, UNICEF takes a life-cycle based approach, recognizing the particular importance of early childhood development and adolescence. UNICEF programs focus on the most disadvantaged children, including those living in fragile contexts, those with disabilities, those who are affected by rapid urbanization and those affected by environmental degradation.

UNICEF has established a Junior Professional Officers Program (the “JPO Programme”), which enables governments to fund Junior Professional Officer (“JPO”) posts at UNICEF so that young men and women from the government’s country can acquire field experience in international development co-operation activities, such as those of UNICEF, under the close supervision of senior UNICEF officials, while also contributing to the implementation of the programs and activities of UNICEF through temporary service in UNICEF's field offices. In exceptional circumstances, subject to UNICEF’s needs, UNICEF may offer experience in international development activities at its headquarters locations.
