The State of the World's Children, 1993. Summary.
Grant, James P.
This document is a summary of a report that argues that despite all the problems of the post cold war world, the means are now at hand to end mass malnutrition, preventable disease, and widespread illiteracy among the world's children at an estimated cost of $25 billion per year in additional aid to developing nations. To give this cause priority, a worldwide movement is required to bring to bear the same kind of pressure as is today being exerted by the environmental and women's movements. Protecting children from the worst aspects of poverty would strengthen efforts to promote environmental protection, sustainable economic growth, equality for women, population slow-down, and political stability.
