UNICEF is committed to making information about its programmes and operations available to the public. UNICEF considers public access to information a key component of effective participation of all stakeholders, including the public, in the achievement of its mandate. UNICEF recognises that there is a positive correlation between transparency, including through information-sharing, and public trust in UNICEF-supported development work and humanitarian response.

No representation is made or warranty given, express or implied, as to the completeness or accuracy of information made available by UNICEF. The requestor shall apply discretion when using the information made available by UNICEF. UNICEF will not be liable for any direct or indirect loss arising from the use of the information.
