The State of the World’s Children 2016: A fair chance for every child

In this year’s State of the World’s Children report, UNICEF examines the cycles of deprivation that exist around us and perpetuate the deepening inequality that threatens societies everywhere. A call for action, UNICEF is convinced that a different outcome, a better world, is possible and that children born into poverty should not be doomed to live lives of despair.

The report highlights cost-effective and more effective ways to reach vulnerable children, families and communities, citing such things as technological advances, the digital revolution, and citizen-led movements.

Pulling from its vast research and experience, UNICEF presents two findings from a simulation that tested two methods for achieving maternal and child health goals. The findings are presented here and advocate for a changed approach to achieving these goals than the one currently being pursued.
