ABSTRACT
The article states that the goal of the Unicef funding appeal in 2009 is about $1 billion, which will be used for humanitarian action related to health and nutrition. The majority of funding will go to reducing severe hunger among women and children, especially in the sub-Saharan Africa region where climate change and conflict has caused a scarcity of food. The plan also includes emergency drugs, midwifery kits, and a strategy for HIV prevention.
