This annual report reviews the work UNICEF has been doing to help transform the "Child Survival Revolution" from a dream into a reality. Discussion focuses primarily on child health and nutrition and other basic services for children. Throughout, the review is supplemented with profiles of program initiatives made to improve the conditions of the poor in developing countries. Colombia's primary health care services to people in the mountainous Cauca Department are profiled along with examples of programs designed to reduce infant morbidity and mortality in Zimbabwe, the Congo, the Philippines, and Indonesia. Discussion of other basic services for children concerns safe water supplies and sanitation (profiles from Nigeria and Burma); formal and nonformal education (profile from Bangladesh); urban basic services (profile from Brazil); women's activities (profile from Costa Rica); appropriate technology (profile from Nepal); and childhood disabilities. Discussion further concerns program support activities, advocacy for children, and emergency relief and rehabilitation (profile from Ethiopia). The review concludes with a map showing UNICEF program commitments in the developing world. Supplementing the review are charts; a map; tables indicating UNICEF's finances in terms of income, commitments, and expenditure for 1983-84; and a brief overview of UNICEF's philosophy, policies, methods of program cooperation, and supporting activities.
