UNICEF was established by the United Nations on 11 December 1946 to meet the emergency needs of children in post-war Europe and China. The UNICEF mandate was broadened in 1950 to deal with the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries everywhere. In 1953, it became a permanent part of the United Nations system and the name was shortened to the United Nations Children's Fund. However, UNICEF retained its original acronym.

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories. It also works in the world's toughest places to reach the children and young people in greatest need.
