The Child Development Index highlights considerable progress made in many parts of the world in improving children’s wellbeing since 1990. It also shows that child poverty and deprivation are deep-rooted and pervasive, particularly in relation to the three areas measured by the Index. Save the Children believes that reducing child poverty in developing countries will require political choices that prioritise pro-poor development policies that strengthen health systems and empower women.
