UNICEF equipped 2.6 million health workers with PPE - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The year, 2020, has been described as a year like no other, 
just as some Personal Protective Equipment (PPP) for nearly 2.6 million health workers, was noted by UNICEF, reports ITREALMS.
This is coming as school closures, increased vulnerability to abuse, mental health strains and loss of access to vital services have hurt children deeply. 

But not all children have been affected equally.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed deep inequalities that have existed for too long. As we see from the ongoing effects of COVID-19, this impact continues now.

Despite daunting challenges to children, young people and to UNICEF staff worldwide, in 2020, UNICEF responded to the crises stemming from COVID-19, including leadership in the COVAX Facility, resulting in the financing of COVID-19 vaccines for 92 low- and middle-income countries and preparing countries to deliver the vaccine.

  • Critical WASH services and supplies for 106 million people.

  • Risk communication and public information to reach 3 billion people.

  • Personal protective equipment for nearly 2.6 million health workers.

  • More than 301 million children with remote learning.

Response to 455 humanitarian situations in 152 countries beyond COVID-19.As we mark UNICEF’s 75th year, the report makes clear that more is needed as we continue the global fight against COVID-19.
