'Saving the Children'

December 24, 1987

The main theme of the report is that the greatest opportunity for improving the plight of the world's children lives lies in informing and supporting parents in applying what is already known about basic and inexpensive methods of child protection.

The report calls for a grand alliance of all possible resources--teachers, health services, government leaders, mass media, religious leaders, business leaders, labor unions, women's groups, voluntary organizations and an informed public. This alliance would create a demand for practical knowledge and methods that could bring about, "a revolution in child survival and development."
