This special unicef report documents the range of problems behind the decline of living standards in Africa and describes the practical steps which are being taken to confront the crisis. Discussed are (1) increasing implementation of immunization programs and progress in promoting oral rehydration therapy; (2) the impact on child survival and development of growth checking, improved weaning, promotion of breast-feeding, and prevention of vitamin a deficiency; (3) basic child survival strategies which would considerably improve the lives and health of women; (4) the potential and danger inherent in the idea of "self-health"; and (5) the present need and present opportunity to provide a basic minimum protection for the lives and growth of all the world's children at a very low cost and in a very short time. Tables present basic statistics concerning factors related to infant mortality. In addition, brief case studies or "Panels" are inserted into the text provide illustrative examples of effective programs in numerous developing nations and additional information concerning immunization, iodine, parasites, population trends, vitamin a, and the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes.

The World Summit for children was held at the United Nations, New York, on September 30, 1990. The summit set child health goals to be achieved by the year 2000, and offered strategies and guiding principles for achieving the goals. The summit proposed a new ethic for children which called for children's needs to be given high priority in the allocation of resources. The summit considered topics relevant to the problem of world population, and summit panels set goals for various problem areas, including: (1) deaths of children under five years; (2) maternal mortality; (3) malnutrition; (4) pneumonia and diarrhea; (5) lack of immunization; (6) poor control of the number and timing of births; (7) decrease in breastfeeding; (8) lack of basic education; (9) poor water quality and sanitation; (10) inadequate health education; (11) aids; (12) Guinea worm disease; (13) vitamin a and iodine deficiencies; (14) and insufficient protection of children at work and during war. The Summit's World Declaration on the Survival, Protection and Development of Children; the plan of action for implementing the World Declaration; and the 54 articles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child are included. Tables present worldwide statistics concerning such topics as nutrition, health, education, demography, economics, and women. (Bc)

The State of the world's children 1987 by James P Grant( Book )

10 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report maintains that it is just as unacceptable to allow millions of children to die each year from needless infection and malnutrition as it is to let them die in sudden emergencies of drought and famine. The world now has the means to attack childhood malnutrition and disease on a massive scale and at an affordable cost. Four million children's lives have been saved in the last five years by nations which have mobilized to put low-cost solutions into effect. Discussed are (1) potential benefits to social development of today's new capacity for mass communication; (2) scientific information which would enable parents to protect the lives and growth of their children; (3) the current success and future potential of oral rehydration therapy; (4) the spread of low cost immunization in the 1980s throughout the developing world; (5) the benefits of social mobilization to achieve specific health goals; and (6) the use of growth checking as a means of information dissemination to parents. The report concludes that the strategy of social mobilization may allow almost every individual and organization in the world to become involved in the fight against poverty. Insert panels describe the experiences of various nations in bringing about drastic improvements in child survival and development. A statistical section provides figures for 130 major nations for child survival rates, nutrition, health, education, population, and economic progress, as well as selected data for less populous countries.

6 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last 2 years, the State of the World's Children report has drawn worldwide attention to the fact that four simple and low-cost methods could enable parents to halve the rate of child deaths and child disability in the developing world. Part I of this year's statement reports on the progress of these strategies in different parts of the world and within the contexts of the child survival revolution, a minimum "safety net" of health and nutrition, implementation of child survival techniques, synergystic effects of intervention, dissemination of technologies and information, community health workers, support for mothers, and changing ideas about what are to be considered "normal" health risks confronting children. Part ii brings together summaries of the latest research and writings on the low-cost methods. Contents focus on growth monitoring, oral rehydration therapy, breastfeeding, immunization, education of women, family spacing, and food supplements. Part iii provides statistical information for all nations, including figures on nutrition, health, education, population, and economic progress. Facts involving basic indicators, nutrition, health, education, demographic indicators, economic indicators, and basic indicators for less populous countries are reported. Statistical tables list the nations of the world in order of their child survival rates. (Rh)
The State of the world's children 1988 by James P Grant( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This special unicef report documents how an alliance of social resources--teachers, organizations, agencies--is beginning to help provide parents throughout the world with health knowledge that will benefit their children. Discussed are: (1) low-cost methods of protecting children's lives and growth which now prevent 2 million child deaths per year; (2) the benefits of the promotion of immunization and oral rehydration therapy; (3) the need for renewed commitment by the industrialized world to help the poorest; (4) the rights of families to knowledge about birth control, disease prevention, smoking, alcohol, and aids; (5) ways in which an alliance of agencies, schools, religions, media, and volunteers can bring health knowledge to parents; (6) how community health workers can support women in the developing world; and (7) the importance of the participation of all possible organized resources in "a grand alliance for children." Eight extensive tables of data support the text, and 13 text figures are included. In addition, 18 descriptive panels placed throughout the text describe the efforts of various countries and organizations to improve children's health, or provide progress reports on topics such as aids and breastfeeding. Footnotes to the tables, a glossary, a list of data sources, and a list of UNICEF's offices conclude the report. (Skc)
The state of the world's children 1984 by James P Grant( Book )

11 editions published between 1983 and 1987 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breakthroughs in science and social organization could soon be helping to save the lives of half the 40,000 young children who now die every day. They could also prevent several million children a year from becoming mentally or physically disabled. To achieve these goals, local successes showing that a child health revolution is possible must be translated into intensive national campaigns. The challenge is now primarily political rather than technical or financial. Primary health care makes such a revolution possible; education, communication, and social organization make it practicable. Growth monitoring, oral rehydration therapy, the promotion of breast-feeding, and expanded immunization are the four techniques making this revolution affordable even in the midst of economic recession. These techniques are low cost, presently available, and almost universally relevant; in addition, they achieve rapid results and empower those they serve. Three additional but more difficult and costly interventions that could reduce child deaths and child disabilities by two-thirds within 10 or 15 years involve (1) more food for at-risk women and children during pregnancy, breast-feeding, and weaning; (2) more choice for women regarding both the size of their families and the interval between births; and (3) more education to increase women's access to vital information. (Included are brief descriptions of successes and problems of health programs in 15 countries.) (Rh)
The state of the world's children 1993 by James P Grant( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1993 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report argues that despite all the problems of the post cold war world, the means are now at hand to end mass malnutrition, preventable disease, and widespread illiteracy among the world's children. Unicef (the United Nations Children's Fund) estimates the cost of about $25 billion per year in additional aid to developing nations. To give this cause priority, a worldwide movement is required to bring to bear the same kind of pressure as is today being exerted by the environmental and women's movements. Protecting children from the worst aspects of poverty would strengthen efforts to promote environmental protection, sustainable economic growth, equality for women, population slow-down, and political stability. Many hundreds of organizations, especially in the developing world, are already beginning to respond to this challenge. Those in the developed world who support this movement to meet basic human needs must realize that action on debt, trade, aid, and loans, and on trading relationships, is a necessary part of that struggle. Detailed statistical tables on basic indicators, nutrition, health, education, demographic indicators, economic indicators, women, less populous countries, newly independent countries, and rates of progress are provided.
