Progress in child well-being - building on what works

Children’s well-being has improved dramatically thanks to increased global political will and efficient supportive programmes and policies, according to the present report, released by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and Save the Children UK. But it also warns that benefits need to reach the most disadvantaged children for gains to be sustainable. Case studies examined in the report suggest that various factors have been critical in delivering positive outcomes for children: stronger and explicit national commitments to invest in children, supportive policies and programmes at country level, and greater and well-targeted development assistance.
