infectious

Here is my best explanation:

'it's catching' is the definition.
('infectious' can be similar in meaning to 'catching')

'unicef is to change' is the wordplay.
'change' indicates anagramming the letters.
'unicef'+'is'+'to'='unicefisto'
'unicefisto' with letters rearranged gives 'INFECTIOUS'.

'and' acts as a link.
