The State of the World’s Children 1980-81

The impact of poverty on children’s lives.

Highlights

The first State of the World’s Children report (1980-81) focuses on the impact of poverty on children’s lives. It argues that perhaps for the first time the world has the resources and knowledge to mount a decisive push against hunger, disease and illiteracy. It calls for long-term political commitment to eradicating the worst aspects of poverty before the end of the twentieth century.
