The State of the World's Children 1982-1983

Published on


The State of the World's Children 1982-1983 launches the ‘child survival and development revolution’. The message of the report: recent advances in both biological sciences and social organisation - including child growth monitoring to recognize undernutrition, oral re-hydration therapy to treat diarrhoea, breastfeeding and immunization against six vaccine-preventable diseases (GOBI) - have made it possible to save the lives of millions of children who die every year from preventable causes and to prevent an equally large number from becoming mentally or physically disabled.
