UNICEF – Community Resources 

NURS FPX 4060 Assessment 2 Community Resources

Community Resources are a major concern of societies that involve responsibilities to assist people in achieving their requirements. Globally, many organizations are working for human rights and to provide a better life to people in need by providing services for a healthy lifestyle and maintaining the mobility and stability of a community’s economy. The organization aims to provide better resources that can increase a community’s strength. They may work on child protection laws, support poor families, help widows, and improve the education system in hard-to-reach areas. Government resources are becoming limited in the upcoming years so these organizations help the needy people to survive.

Organization’s Mission and Vision 

UNICEF is one of the leading organizations that is serving humanity in almost 190 countries worldwide and works on the safety of adolescence. Earlier, people were working and taking measures for humanity and children’s safety but inequities among and within countries persist. Especially in under-developed countries, children are unable to reach the basic needs of life. In some areas, healthcare organizations are providing very expensive services to people that only allege class can approach to get the better treatment by spending lots of money. But it gets difficult when it comes to low-income families, they are having most of the illnesses because of a lack of resources and not affordable treatments. There is no trained staff or expert nurses to deal with such people and they suffer just because they are poor. The health resources are basic need of humanity, and people in such areas are having diseases due to a lack of resources and a healthy lifestyle. Especially, children are more susceptible to illness, environmental hazards, and the devastating effects of humanitarian emergencies. They do not get access to schools to get even a basic education (Clark et al., 2020).

In case of any viral outbreak or a disease spread, there is not enough clean drinking water, proper medication, sanitation, and hygiene facilities. Lack of basic resources leads to an increased mortality rate among children and adolescents as they are more likely to get infected due to weak immune systems. In many communities, children are dying during an outbreak due to unhygienic drinking water and poor sanitation system. Mostly in villages or rural areas, water supply is limited and due to unhygienic water for daily use, people get infections more rapidly. UNICEF aims to help those people and children to get enough resources in need and provide safety measures to needy communities. A UNICEF report declares the count of 1.2 million adolescents and children that die under the age of 20 annually due to some severe illness/diseased condition. UNICEF evaluates the progress of life in communities and analyzes the health risks and measures for health care of local communities (UNICEF., 2020).

Health Risk and Health Care Needs Among Local Community

Risks are all around us but sometimes it gets difficult to recognize and talk about the health risks in a community they are most important to be understood timely. UNICEF focuses on thinking about health risks and the availability of resources for the community and children. Providing people with basic health needs is a priority of the organization and evaluating the health status of children in communities as well as providing the required facilities to maintain health standards (Byrom et al., 2021). The reduced ratio in infants and maternal mortality rates has been noticed globally but, the death rate is still not in control as women still die before, during, and after childbirth. The death rate can be controlled by providing better-quality health care. 

Worldwide, an estimated 8 million deaths occur from poor-quality health care or from lack of access to care. Especially patient care is not taken in notice seriously in the healthcare settings which is the cause of increased mortality rate. Another concern is that now doctors are very irresponsible towards maternity issues, due to negligence of nursing staff or doctors, most the mothers die after giving birth to a child or they may lose their child due to mishandling of delivery cases (WHO, 2019).

UNICEF responds to these issues and provides better facilities for infants and pregnant. UNICEF works to benefit people by designing and implementing strategies and rules, especially for providing a prosperous life to local communities UNICEF is dedicated to providing worldwide assistance to populations and organizing training programs to enhance experience and understanding methods amongst birth attending personnel and health professionals, allowing nursing staff to provide basic medical assistance with convenience (Coll et al., 2021).

Equal Opportunity and Improving the Quality of Life

UNICEF approaches Health System Strengthening (HSS) areas to design evidence-based practices that help focus on mother and children’s health concerns.  Children who have any kind of disabilities are kept on priority. Equal opportunities to be provided to children along with the quality of life. Quality of life provides confidence to children; it makes the voice of children to be heard without being reserved for their disabilities. According to research by (Black et al., 2020) the quality, the issues are mostly caused by non-disciplined groups, main causes of mortality, morbidity, and malnutrition, identifying priority interventions to address them as well as bottlenecks in determinants of coverage and their causes, cost-effective solutions to bottlenecks, develop costed plans with operational targets and monitor implementation and bottlenecks reduction. 

UNICEF provided opportunities for training programs to boost the skills of the clinical and nursing staff. The main objective of training programs is to enhance their abilities and promote their educational standards. Enhancing their practical knowledge so they can play a good role in promoting children’s health and providing resources (UNICEF, 2020).

Impact of Funding Sources, Policy, and Legislations

 UNICEF (2020) reported that all the resources come from the voluntary contributions of governments, intergovernmental organizations, or the private sector. UNICEF relies on multiple funding sources to hold on to its mission of realizing the rights of every child, especially the most vulnerable. By 2020, total donations to UNICEF were estimated to be over $7 billion contributed by the government sector, private sector, US, German, or European. The government sector comprises grants from the state, inter-governmental organizations, and worldwide programme collaborations. UNICEF delivers life-changing outcomes with the help of all these contributors who help as a support system. (UNICEF, 2020). 

The organization aims to provide better resources that can increase a community’s strength. They may work on child protection laws, support poor families, help widows, and improve the education system in hard-to-reach areas. Funding supports the expense of the largest proportion of planned programs and the evaluation of valuable resources for children (Byrom et al., 2021). Health resources is the basic need of humanity, and people in such areas are having diseases due to a lack of resources and a healthy lifestyle. Funds are allocated across the globe according to 3 criteria including under-five mortality rate, gross national income per capita, and child population size (Aryeetey & Dykes, 2018).

 

Safety Needs and Involvement of Nurses

It provides all vital assistance to kids as well as the surrounding area via strategy development and a variety of programs. Nurses play an important role in functioning as health workers in an institution or day-care center, and they’ve been extensively educated by UNICEF before even being permitted to work in the area. The organization aims to provide better resources that can increase a community’s strength. Health resources are the basic need of humanity, and people in such areas are having diseases due to a lack of resources and a healthy lifestyle. They may work on child protection laws, support poor families, help widows, and improve the education system in hard-to-reach areas (Aryeetey & Dykes, 2018). 

Participation of nursing staff really matters in ensuring comfortable, and quality service to the community through the designed set of rules. Children will be more at ease with the equal opportunity and promotion of all the human rights that will promote a healthy life for even disabled children. The strategies will overcome the mortality and morbidity rates of infants and children. It will help to remove gaps among healthcare settings and will provide easy access to quality services and the health of children (Byrom et al., 2021).
