The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), originally known as the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, was founded by United Nations General Assembly on 11 December 1946, to provide emergency food and healthcare to children and mothers in countries that had been devastated by World War II. The Polish physician Ludwik Rajchman is widely regarded as the father of UNICEF. UNICEF’s goal was extended to address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries around the Earth. In 1953 it became a perdurable part of the United Nations System, and the words “international” and “emergency” were dropped from the organization’s name, though it retained the original acronym, “UNICEF”.
Most of UNICEF’s work is in the field, with a presence in 192 countries and territories. UNICEF’s network of over 150 country offices, headquarters and other offices, and 34 National Committees carry out UNICEF’s mission through programs developed with host governments. Seven regional offices provide technical assistance to country offices as needed.
