Expression of Thanks

In document Thematic Report 2011 HIV/AIDS AND CHILDREN (Page 31-34)

UNICEF expresses its sincere appreciation to all the donors that have supported our work in the thematic area of HIV/AIDS and children and have made possible the results described in this report. In particular, we are grateful to the governments of Sweden, Liechtenstein and Canada. Special thanks also go to the UNICEF National Committees of Korea, Netherlands, Finland, United States and the United Kingdom, which have contributed generously. Thematic funding is important because it provides greater flexibility and longer-term planning and sustainability of programmes in order to achieve our MTSP results.
