Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 24 Sep 2018

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, hope

National Committees for UNICEF are an integral part of UNICEF’s global organization. Currently there are 33 National Committees in the world, each established as an independent local non-governmental organization. Serving as the public face and dedicated voice of UNICEF in industrialized countries, National Committees work tirelessly to raise funds from the private sector, promote children’s rights and secure worldwide visibility for children threatened by poverty, disasters, armed conflict, abuse and exploitation.

National Committees collectively raise around one-third of UNICEF’s annual income. This comes through contributions from corporations, civil society organizations and more than 6 million individual donors worldwide. They also rally many different partners—including the media, national and local government officials, other NGOs, specialists such as doctors and lawyers, corporations, schools, young people and the public—on issues related to children’s rights.

In 2009, the community of National Committees adopted a set of Principles of Good Governance. The objective of the Principles is to enable robust governance in National Committees as a condition for achieving results, by increasing effectiveness and efficiency, ethics, transparency and accountability, and ensuring a well-considered risk and control environment is in place.

The Governance Team in UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships Division leads UNICEF’s strategic work on implementing the Principles and works with boards and executive management in each National Committee to convert the Principles into action and results.

    The IAS organizes the world’s two most prestigious HIV conferences, each convened biennially in alternating years. The International AIDS Conference is the largest conference on any global health or development issue, and provides a unique forum for the intersection of science and advocacy. The IAS Conference on HIV Science brings together a broad cross section of HIV professionals and features the latest HIV science, with a focus on implementation – moving scientific advances into practice.

    In addition, the IAS programmes advocate for urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV, including increased investment in HIV cure research; optimizing treatment and care for infants, children and adolescents with HIV in resource-limited settings; preventing and treating HIV-related co-infections; and expanding access to prevention, treatment and care for key populations at higher risk for HIV – such as men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and transgender individuals – including protecting their human rights by combatting punitive laws and discriminatory policies.
