South African Child Gauge 2012

How well is South Africa doing in fulfilling its constitutional commitments to children? This is a question that motivates the Children's Institute at the University of Cape Town, which publishes the South African Child Gauge, the only publication in the country that offers an annual snapshot of the situation of children and reflects critically on a selection of conditions that help or hinder children's well-being and their enjoyment of their rights. The 2012 issue, the 7th in the series, focuses on children and inequality. It also discusses recent legislative developments affecting children, and provides child-centred data on children’s access to social assistance, education, health care, housing and basic services. The Children’s Institute aims to contribute to policies, laws and interventions that promote equality, and improve the conditions of all children in South Africa, through research, advocacy, education and technical support.
