UNICEF Annual Report 1983.
United Nations Children's Fund, New York, NY.
In introducing this annual report, the executive director of UNICEF delineates the four techniques for primary health care and basic services reported in the publication "State of the World's Children, 1982-1983." The ensuing review of UNICEF's activities illustrates highlights of the year's program cooperation, including trends and key events, by providing specific program profiles from different countries. In a discussion of child health and nutrition, the role of Zimbabwe's village health-work trainers is emphasized. Bangladesh, the Philippines, and Indonesia are highlighted in discussions of oral rehydration, immunization, breast-feeding, and children's growth. Other basic services for children described include clean water and sanitation in Mozambique, formal and nonformal education in India, urban basic services in Haiti, and women's activities in Indonesia. Childhood disabilities and appropriate technology are also briefly mentioned. Program support activities undertaken in Jamaica and Pakistan are described along with Lebanon's emergency relief and rehabilitation programs. Maps of UNICEF in action illustrate program commitments in the developing world, including governmental contributions. UNICEF's finances (income, commitments, and expenditures for the year) are depicted in a table and charts. An overview of UNICEF's philosophy, policies, methods of program cooperation, and supporting activities is also provided. (BJD)
