In emergencies where children are especially vulnerable to disease, malnutrition and violence, UNICEF works in collaboration with the government, UN agencies, and civil society and the media and service providers. These partnerships are crucial to ensuring comprehensive and effective delivery of humanitarian assistance. They also permit the diverse array of programmes necessary to address the full spectrum of children’s rights, a fact that is especially important in emergencies, when these rights are most under threat. This individual contractor will provide professional digital still photographic coverage of the COVID19 response and UNICEF Programme activities on need basis which includes field travel to 22 provinces of Papua New Guinea.
