Every Last Child Country Spotlight: Mexico

Save the Children is campaigning at an international and national level to achieve the greatest impact for children with the Every Last Child Campaign.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) provide a path towards eradicating poverty and creating more equitable societies, by addressing aspects of governance that are necessary for accountably implementing changes. In this context, the challenge for Mexico is to reduce the large inequality gap. Considering economic and social dimensions amongst others, Mexico needs to focus on providing inclusive, equitable and quality basic services to the population living in the greatest deprivation and exclusion. To a greater degree, a more equitable future depends on incorporating the 21.4 million children and adolescents who live in poverty, of which 4.7 million live in extreme poverty.
