Children, youth and ageing persons

In 1998, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) continued its efforts to improve the situation of children worldwide, particularly those living in poverty. UNICEF global advocacy and alliance-building efforts focused on promoting children’s rights, while its programmes continued to highlight development goals established at the 1990 World Summit for Children. Programme priorities for 1998 emphasized reducing childhood death, illness and disability; reducing maternal mortality and morbidity; improving children’s access to and quality of education; and protecting them from exploitation and abuse.
