* UNICEF: Looking Back on the Challenges and Accomplishments in 2008
* 시간: 10 min 30 secs


2008 was a year that presented the world's children with a seemingly endless series of natural and man-made disasters.


Always at the ready, UNICEF was called upon repeatedly to provide humanitarian assistance to thousands of children and families in need. Though the difficulties were often great, all of us can look back to 2008 with a vital feeling of pride in our accomplishments…and reinvigorated dedication to the challenges ahead.


UNICEF's accomplishments in 2008 proved time and again that the combined effectiveness of governments, international organizations, the private sector and local communities ARE delivering results for children and progress towards the Millennium Development Goals.


Food and nutrition insecurity is an increasing concern for millions of vulnerable people, as fluctuating prices, growing populations, poor harvests, drought and desertification took their toll in 2008. To address the situation, the Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon established a High Level Task Force in April, of which UNICEF is a member.


Today, more children are in school than ever before, including millions whose lives have been upended by conflict or disaster. UNICEF and the European Union are supporting schools in Syria to accommodate the influx of thousands of refugees from Iraq. In February, Executive Director Ann M.

The Executive Director paid official visits to 22 countries in all this year, including Brazil, Ghana, Haiti, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Mexico, Sierra Leone and Togo.


In the DRC, survivors of sexual violence publicly spoke out, breaking their silence as part of V-DAY and UNICEF's global campaign: 'Stop Raping Our Greatest Resource: Power to Women and Girls in DRC'. Standing before government and UN officials, international delegates and V-DAY founder Eve Ensler, women and girls told their stories of rape and its impact on their lives.


Thirty years after the Alma-Ata declaration, progress on primary health care continues. New data released in September showed that under-5 mortality continues to decline. To expand on this progress, UNICEF and our H-8 partners are working to develop technical support, enhance community-based interventions, build capacity, strengthen health systems and expand programming on newborn and maternal health.


In April, the 'Countdown to 2015' report on maternal, newborn and child survival was released at the annual Inter-Parliamentary Union assembly in Cape Town. Afterwards, 500 global health experts
