GENEVA, 13 March 2014 — Millions of children across the globe have their rights violated, but only a few are able to seek recourse to improve their situation in a timely, fair and effective way, UNICEF said today. Violations include children being denied their right to quality health care and education and their right to protection from abuse, violence and exploitation — sometimes perpetrated by those closest to them. Without access to justice, children cannot take their rightful place in society.
