About World Children’s Day

Every year on November 20th, to mark the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, UNICEF raises awareness of the most pressing issues facing children and invites children’s participation. As such, World Children’s Day highlights Article 12 of the Convention, which guarantees every child the right to be heard, to participate and to play a role in the civic life of their society.

About the Convention on the Rights of the Child

In 1989, world leaders united around a common cause and adopted the Convention, an international agreement on childhood, that helped transform children’s lives.

Thirty years on, child rights have not changed, they have no expiry date. But childhood has changed. Urgent, concrete action is needed to protect and promote the rights of every child, now, and for future generations.

How we contribute

For more than 40 years, we are setting the industry standards for medical cold chain solutions enabling safe storage and transport of vaccines, medicines, blood components, and other temperature-sensitive specimens.

From Ultra-low freezers to Solar-powered vaccine refrigerators and transport boxes, all with integrated real-time monitoring systems, we provide end-to-end reliable and medical-grade solutions trusted by governments and the world’s leading humanitarian organizations, labs, and clinics. 


UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives. To defend their rights. To help them realize their potential. And we never give up. This implies a great responsibility and an enormous logistical effort. Our work is only possible thanks to a global network of partners and our teams around the world.
