Child Well-being in Rich Countries - A Comparative Overview

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Sep 29, 2013 | U.N. Children’s Fund Office of Research

This Innocenti Report Card by the U.N. Children’s Fund Office of Research examines the state of children across the ‘rich’ world. As debates generate strongly opposed views on austerity measures and social spending cuts, the Card lists the achievements of 29 of the world’s advanced economies in ensuring the well-being of their children in the first decade of this century. This international comparison proves that child poverty in these countries is not inevitable, but susceptible to policy, and that some countries are doing much better than others at protecting their most vulnerable children. drug coupons read discount prescription coupons
