Item description for The State of the World's Children 2002: Leadership by UNICEF Publications...
Illustrating the many and varied ways that people have shown their commitment to children's welfare, this report calls for leadership from all continents and all sectors of society. It emphasizes the need to give children the best possible start in life, to ensure that every child completes a basic education, and to involve children - adolescents in particular - in the decisions that affect their lives. A number of goals have been established: reduce infant and under-5 mortality rate; reduce maternal mortality rate; reduce severe and moderate under-5 malnutrition; universal access to safe drinking water and sanitary means of excreta disposal; universal access to basic education; improved protection of children. The text includes statistical data and excerpts from the regional high level meetings that were held in 2000-2001 in preparation for the Special Session on Children.
