UNICEF Annual Report 2015 highlightsresults achieved for and with children and young people across the full continuum of humanitarian action and development work. It takes stock of UNICEF activities in all programme areas during 2015, underscoring the organization's commitment to providing a fair chance for every child- especially the most diadvantaged. The report outlines UNICEF's efforts in a year marked by numerous humanitarian emergencies, including the global migrant and refugee crisis. It also emphasizes the role that UNICEF and partners played in making sure that children's rights were at the heart of the new global goals adopted at the United Nations in september 2015.



Every child has the right to health, education and protection, and every society has a stake in expanding children's opportunities in life. Yet, around the world, millions of children are denied a fair chance for no reason other than the country, gender or circumstances into which they are born. The State of the world's children 2016 argues that progress for the most disadvantaged children is not only a moral, but also a stategic imperactive. Stakeholders have a clear cgoice to make: invest in accelerated progress for the children being left behind, or face the consequences of a far more divided world by 2030. At the start of a new development agenda, the report concludes with a set of recommendations to help chart the course towards a more equitable world.
