Global Launch of UNICEF’s The State of the World’s Children 2016



UNICEF’s flagship report says making the right choices now can, and will, reverse poverty, illiteracy and early deaths of the world’s most disadvantaged children.

                                                                          June 28, 2016

Dear Colleague,Today, UNICEF launches our flagship report, The State of the World’s Children 2016: A fair chance for every child.The report argues that progress for the most disadvantaged children is the defining condition for delivering on the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
A Fair Chance For Every Child
Unless the world tackles inequity today, by 2030:

  • Over 165 million children will live on no more than US$1.90 a day, nine out of 10 of them in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Almost 70 million children under the age of 5 will die of largely preventable causes.
  • 750 million women will have been married as children, perpetuating inter-generational cycles of disadvantage.

We have a clear choice to make: Invest in accelerated progress for the children being left behind, or face the consequences of a far more divided and unfair world by 2030.

Inequity is not inevitable. Better information on the most vulnerable children; integrated solutions to the challenges they face; innovative ways to address old problems; more equitable investment; and increased involvement by communities – all these measures can help level the playing field for children.

UNICEF is urging every country to develop a concrete, time-bound plan for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals that focuses on reaching the most disadvantaged children first. An equity approach – one that invests in the most disadvantaged children – is the best way to offer a fair chance for every child.

I invite you to read the report here and share it with your colleagues and networks. I hope it will inspire thought and action.

Best regards,

Paloma Escudero
Director of Communications, UNICEF
