    For every child, an Advocate

    To measurably improve
    UNICEF's ability to deliver better results for children, and to implement the ambitious ?People and Culture' goals of the Strategic Plan, the Division of Human Resources (DHR) is embarking on a transformational strategy with a new global HR delivery model.
