The State of the World's Children 1987

Published on


The State of the World's Children 1987 argues that the world has the means to attack childhood malnutrition and disease on a massive scale and at an affordable cost. And as a dramatic demonstration of this new potential, the lives of over 4 million children have already been saved - in the last five years alone - by nations which have mobilized to put these low-cost solutions to effect. Inset panels document this experience nation by nation, and describe the new methods being used to bring about a drastic improvement in child survival and development. The report includes a chapter that commemorates the fortieth anniversary of UNICEF, documenting the main changes in the state of the world’s children since UNICEF’s establishment in 1946
