UNICEF Report

Posted: November 27, 2015

Last week on Universal Children’s Day, UNICEF released a report presenting a statistical picture of the vast inequalities in human development indicators among children and families around the world. Some stats highlighted in the report, For every child,  fair chance: The promise of equity:

  • Children from the poorest households are nearly twice as likely as those from the richest households to die before age five, and five times more likely to be out of school.
  • Girls from the poorest families are four times more likely as those from the richest families to be married before 18.
  • More than 2.4 billion people still do not have adequate toilets – 40 per cent of them in South Asia; and more than 660 million still lack access to safe drinking water – nearly half of them in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Roughly half of the 159 million children suffering from stunting live in South Asia and one-third in Africa.
