Global Childhood Report 2020: The hardest places to be a child

Compared to last year, the End of Childhood index finds the overall situation for children appears more favorable in 121 out of 180 countries. This is welcomed news – and it shows that investments and policies are working to lift up many children worldwide. But the index also shows progress is not happening fast enough and conditions appear considerably worse in 19 countries. Consequently, childhood has ended too soon for hundreds of millions of children worldwide. The major reasons include ill-health, malnutrition, exclusion from education, child labor, child marriage, early pregnancy, conflict, and extreme violence.

This report takes a hard look at these events that rob children of their childhoods and reveals where greater investments are needed to save children from poverty, discrimination, and neglect.
