UNITED NATIONS CHILDREN’S FUND (UNICEF)
Accelerating global child protection and inclusion
Our collaboration with UNICEF is to enhance the organisation’s global endeavours with critical institutions, including governments, bilateral, multilateral, and international, fundraising and implementing programmes and developing game-changing partnerships. The team has produced high-quality, multilingual, visual communication assets to assist UNICEF with its humanitarian response and stakeholder
communication efforts. This work includes developing vital reporting tools that capture the work of UNICEF, be it the situation, nutrition, or health and safety status of children in Africa and beyond.
For UNICEF, the mission is simple: to be there for every child and commit to realising all children’s rights. There is growing evidence that investing
in the health, education, and protection of society’s most disadvantaged citizens and addressing inequity will allow all children to fulfil their potential and lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. For the team, it’s creating high-quality visual communication solutions that take the fight forward in creating a much safer world for all children everywhere to thrive.
WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION (WHO)
Championing global health equity
We worked with the WHO to develop essential communication tools that guide countries globally in the collective and individual fight to eliminate HIV/AIDS by 2030. The team developed critical assets, including the latest edition of the Biobehavioral Survey guidelines and 27 country profiles. This edition of the guidelines is an update to the 2000 edition with newer survey methodology techniques, incorporating biomarker testing. The country profiles capture several countries’ responses to various HIV/AIDS-related campaigns. The guidelines were further developed and translated into French and Spanish to broaden the reach in winning the fight against HIV/AIDS. These latest instalments serve as a textbook for students interested in working for research institutions that embark on epidemiological surveys.
38.4 million people in the world were living with HIV in 2021. The global HIV epidemic claimed 68% fewer lives in 2021 since its peak in 2004. And fewer people became newly infected with HIV than in any year since 1990. This work was an opportunity for the team to move the needle even further in this fight.
UNITED NATIONS CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT FUND (UNCDF)
Advancing inclusive digital economies
Our collaboration with UNCDF captures the development of inclusive innovation ecosystems and using technology and digital services in key sectors. It speaks to the design and adoption of innovative, Inclusive Digital Economies and Local Development Finance programmes in countries across the globe, capturing the use of digital tools to improve agricultural productivity to tackle challenges related to empowering women, young people, refugees, and migrants.
The decade of action to achieve Sustainable Development Goals began with an unprecedented health and socioeconomic crisis that may push up to 32 million more people living in the least developed countries (LDCs) into extreme poverty. The team has created numerous communication and knowledge assets in various formats to bolster the UNCDF’s works to invest and catalyse capital to advance financial inclusion to build economies and reduce poverty in the LDCs, from Africa to Europe and the Pacific Islands.
UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR REFUGEES (UNHCR)
Advocating refugees everywhere
Our work with the UNHCR includes developing vital, accessible, multiformat visual communication assets to promote greater collaboration and synergy among the various country offices to better understand and streamline UNHCR messaging. These high-quality communication products incorporate inclusive design—accessible communication assets that ensure the Office communicates effectively to all, including those with disabilities. The work chronicles the global efforts and strides made by the Office, be it developing institutional frameworks on data governance, which guides the responsible use of data in humanitarian response action or capturing the expanding sustainable energy access for refugees’ in-country operations.
At least 89.3 million people worldwide have been forced to flee their homes. Among them are nearly 27.1 million refugees, around half under 18. Millions of stateless people have been denied nationality and lack access to basic rights such as education, health care, employment and freedom of movement. When living in a time when 1 in every 88 people on earth has been forced to flee, the work of the UNHCR is more important than ever before. The mission is to protect and advocate for the dignity and humanity of displaced people.
