The global financial crisis of 2008 profoundly affected the lives and wellbeing of millions of people in developing countries. Children and young people in Peru are likely to be severely affected by the overall impact of the economic crisis, and those already most vulnerable are likely to be the hardest hit. The objective of this publication is to provide a general diagnosis of the situation of children in Peru before the manifestation of the 2008‐09 financial crisis, in terms of children’s health, education, nutrition and wellbeing. The report also contains information on the most important actions and child support reforms undertaken by the present national government in favor of children in these specific sectors.
¿Los niños… primero? Vol. IV – La situación de la infancia en el Perú antes del impacto de la crisis internacional 2009, is the result of a collaboration between La Universidad del Pacífico and Save the Children.
