The State of the World's Children 1986

The surge forward in immunization.


The State of the World's Children 1986 looks at the recent surge forward in immunization and describes how the strategy of social mobilization is being used to put this and other low-cost child protection techniques at the disposal of millions of parents. The second part of the report brings together a distillation of facts and examples, recent research findings and current expert opinion, on the major low-cost opportunities now available for protecting children's lives and development – including sections on growth monitoring, oral rehydration therapy, breastfeeding and weaning, immunization, respiratory infections and female education.
