Despite considerable progress in reducing child mortality, nearly six million under-fives die each year. Millions of children are poorly nourished and go to bed hungry. Quality of education remains poor, and coverage of early child development programmes is still too low. Children are at risk from multiple violations of their rights: child labour, early marriage, violence and sexual exploitation. Disadvantaged children become disadvantaged adolescents and adults, thus perpetuating intergenerational poverty.
The Global Pooled Fund supports a global repository of evidence synthesis of rigorous evidence of what works, for whom and under what circumstances, supported by knowledge translation activities to make the research available to policy makers and practitioners.
With the support of the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre, Campbell is undertaking an evidence map to help inform research priorities in this area. A preliminary version of the mega-map is now available, along with accompanying report and summary. Please send any comments or queries to Dr Ashrita Saran.
