Esta nueva cifra revela por qué la labor de UNICEF en favor de los niños más vulnerables es todavía absolutamente necesaria, 70 años después de su fundación
NUEVA YORK, 9 de diciembre de 2016 – Un total de 535 millones niños y niñas –casi uno de cada cuatro– viven en países afectados por conflictos o desastres, a menudo sin acceso a ningún tipo de atención médica, educación de calidad o una nutrición y protección adecuadas, dijo hoy UNICEF.
Un enfant sur quatre est confronté aux conflits ou catastrophes
Environ 535 millions d’enfants, soit près d’un sur quatre, vivent dans des pays touchés par des conflits ou des catastrophes. Ils sont souvent privés de soins médicaux, d’une éducation de qualité et d’une nutrition et d’une protection adéquates, affirme aujourd’huil’UNICEF.
718,466 (80 per cent) of the total 898,082 refugees and asylum seekers registered in Uganda as of October 2016 are women and children originating mainly from South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Somalia and Rwanda.
From January to November 2016, 23,680 children born to refugee parents in Uganda have had their birth registered using the Mobile Vital Recording System (MVRS). This ensures their right to identity and is a gateway to access services where identification documents are required.
The new figure is a stark reminder of why UNICEF was established, as the organization marks 70 years of work for the most vulnerable children
NEW YORK, 9 December 2016 – An estimated 535 million children – nearly one in four – live in countries affected by conflict or disaster, often without access to medical care, quality education, proper nutrition and protection, UNICEF said today.
An Action Plan for the protection of children from recruitment and use in armed conflict was signed between the UN and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N). This paves the way to a tangible commitment from SPLM-N to seek real solutions to protecting the children of Sudan from recruitment in armed conflict.
Of 21 children earlier released from detainment for association with armed movements, 20 have been reunified with their families and one placed in an alternative care arrangement.

Les appels et plans de réponse dans 33 pays visent à aider 93 millions de personnes
For 2017, humanitarian partners will require $22.2 billion to meet the needs of 92.8 million people in 33 countries. The initial appeal for 2016 stood at $20.1 billion to meet the needs of 87.6 million people in 37 countries.

The last quarter century has seen an overwhelming shift in frequency, scale and magnitude of humanitarian emergencies.
