Excluded and Invisible

image of The State of the World's Children 2006
This year’s report highlights the needs of the millions of children who have not been the beneficiaries of past gains, the ones who are excluded or ‘invisible’. As the world presses ahead with the strategies, initiatives and financing needed to realize the vision of the Millennium Declaration, it must not allow these children to be forgotten.

Including children

A human rights-based approach to development demands that every effort be made to reach all children without exception. The principle of universality, the foundation of all human rights treaties, and the related principle of non-discrimination (on the basis of race, colour, gender, language, opinion, origin, disability, birth or any other characteristic) as expressed in Article 2 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, must apply to all actions to support, protect and care for children.
