State of the World's Children 1998: Focus on Nutrition
The State of the World's Children 1998 focuses on malnutrition, the silent and invisible emergency that exacts a terrible toll on children and their families. The world has an obligation to protect the right of children to good nutrition, building on experience and scientific knowledge. Action is both possible and imperative.
The Progress of Nations 1997
The Progress of Nations 1997 assesses not only such basic social conditions as health, nutrition, education and water and sanitation, but also progress and disparity in areas that are more difficult to measure but also have a profound impact on children's lives, such as violence against girls and women and special protections for children.
The Silent Shout, adapted from a UNICEF co-produced film, warns of landmines, the most persistent and lethal weapons against children.
