The State of the World’s Children 2016: A fair chance for every child

Jun 28, 2016

The State of the World’s Children report by UNICEF argues, promoting equity is more than a moral obligation. It is both a practical and a strategic imperative, helping to break intergenerational cycles of disadvantage and thus reducing the inequalities that undermine all societies.

New Delhi: The study is based on a simulation that tested two scenarios for achieving maternal and child health goals. One approach emphasized a greater effort to reach children who were worse off. The other was a stay-the-course method that did not place special emphasis on the disadvantaged.

Two key findings emerged: First, by addressing the concentration of various forms of inequity in the most disadvantaged populations, an equity approach accelerated progress towards realizing the health goals faster than the stay-the-course path.

Second, by averting more deaths with the same financial investments, the equity approach was considerably more cost-effective and sustainable than the alternative.
