2006 State of the World's Children: Excluded and Invisible


December 2005 - This UNICEF report provides an assessment of the situation of the world's most vulnerable children. These children are growing up beyond the reach of development campaigns and are often invisible in everything from public debate and legislation, to statistics and news stories. It finds that millions of children are likely to remain trapped and forgotten in childhoods of neglect and abuse, with devastating consequences for their long-term well-being and the development of nations. The report argues that any society with an interest in the welfare of its children and its own future must not allow this to happen. The report details how poverty, HIV/AIDS, armed conflict, weak governance and discrimination, deprive children of protection from abuse and exploitation, and exclude them from school, healthcare and other essential services at alarming rates.
