The main policy and advocacy work of the UNICEF Canada International Policy internship will focus on children’s rights to health and immunization, education, and nutrition.

Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic unleashed a world of crisis that has worsened global inequalities in child rights, and eroded hard-won progress on child survival, access to education, health, nutrition and protection and discrimination. It has both revealed and exacerbated these overlapping crises, compounding the impacts of increasing humanitarian emergencies, protracted conflicts and the climate crisis.

To respond to these challenges, UNICEF Canada will work to ensure Canada protects, develops and commits to integrated health, nutrition, education, and child protection initiatives to realize the rights of the most marginalized children around the world.
