Target 2: The hunger reduction target should be almost met by 2015. Globally, about 842 million people are estimated to be undernourished. More than 99 million children under age five are still undernourished and underweight Goal 2: Achieve Universal Primary Education Target 3:
A third of the child population below the age of 20 are considered obese. The way Americans eat today and the lack of physical activity is leading to serious health risk that will continue to get worse as children age. Parents need help from the government to help make changes in the environment that children grow up in. such as, limiting the unhealthy advertisements targeted at children, creating safe places for children to place and exercise, and encouraging parents to prepare nutritious meals for their children as opposed to fast food (Childhood Obesity). Interagency Working Group has started making a difference by setting recommendations for foods advertised to children.
 Poverty may be defined as either absolute or relative.’ Never the less, it’s ironic how in the 21st century we prize ourself for being progressive when almost half of us - over 3 billion people - can’t even conjure up what life is like beyond ‘the poverty trap’ they are in. We prize ourselves, when one out of every two children is poor. Can you imagine growing up as one of the 640 million kids whom have no adequate shelter, let alone a place to call home? Or the 400 million to whom safe drinking water is simply a figment of their imagination? Or maybe the 270 million who have no means of getting health care?
As we know poverty always cause many children lost their childhood，but I don 't think you known there have 2.2 billion children in the world , 1 billion of them in poverty, 121 million children out of education worldwide and 2.2 million children die each year just because they are not immunized. Also in 2011, 165 million children under the age 5 were stunted (reduced rate of growth and development) due to chronic malnutrition. Those were all about the
Introduction and Justification Acute malnutrition is a disastrous public health condition of epidemic proportions. Right now 52 million children of age group of less than five years, experience acute malnutrition and 34 million of them bound to have most severe condition – Severe Acute Malnutrition. Death among under five years of age due to malnutrition was around 1 million every year(1). According to the World Health Organization(WHO), starvation and malnutrition were the single hazardous conditions to the world's public health (2). Mortality rate among malnourished children in the countries like Congo, Bangladesh, Uganda, etc., was 5-20 times higher compared to well-nourished children.
Kuwait is one example of a country which tries to fight poverty. The development and humanitarian assistance provided by Kuwait for a quarter of a century amounted to more than 12 billion and 791 thousand dinars distributed between aid and grants and loans to poor Arab and foreign countries(Alrai, 2016). However, donation alone cannot solve poverty but can only keep it at the current level. The most effective way to reduce the number of people dying from hunger is by finding the real causes of this condition. Ranga (2017) states several reasons for poverty such as lack of education, international disturbances and protests, lack of planning, physical disabilities resulting from accidents, spread of diseases and epidemics.
Globally, 16 million adolescents give birth each year and covering 11% of births worldwide. Ninety five percent of these births take place in low and middle income Countries (WHO, 2008b). The average adolescent birth rate in middle income countries is more than two times high than that in high-income countries, and the rate in low-income countries is five times high (WHO, 2014). A report revealed that the teen pregnancies have declined dramatically in the United States since their peak in the early 1990s. In 2010, the teen pregnancy rate reached its lowest level in nearly 40 years, with especially large declines from 2008 to 2010 (Kost & Henshaw, 2014).
Enrolment in primary education in developing regions reached 90 per cent in 2011, up from 82 per cent in 1999, which means more children than ever are attending primary school. But even as countries with the toughest challenges have advanced, progress on primary school enrolment has slowed since 2004, dimming hopes for achieving universal primary education by 2015. Across 63 developing countries, girls were more likely to be out of school than boys among both primary and lower secondary age groups. The gender gap in school attendance widens in lower secondary education, even for girls living in better-off households. MDG3 This the overarching gender equality goal, which encompasses parity in education, political participation, and economic empowerment Target: Eliminate gender disparity in primary and secondary education, preferably by 2005, and in all levels of education no later than 2015 Indicators: These include the share of women in wage employment in the non-agricultural sector and the proportion of seats held by women in national parliament.
The most visible effect, and therefore the one reported with more frequency, is the association with morbidity and mortality. Studies show that between 35% to 50% of deaths are associated with malnutrition (Horton & Lo, 2013). This translates to an estimated 6 million preventable deaths worldwide (Grantham-McGregor, 2007) However, illness and death are just a pointer to many more effects, like the proverbial tip of an iceberg. Millions of children do not become appreciably ill as to require health facility visits, and therefore the effects are not easily captured in routine surveillance activities. However, they experience suboptimal growth, being physically stunted, with poor cognitive development, diminished immune function, and reproductive capacity (Mahgoub et al., 2006), effects normally found in community
We have to take care of our children, the future assets of the nation. As per recent UNICEF report, 30 percent of 385 million extremely poor children live in India. They constitute mainly the lot of child labour in India and rest of the world. Our data covertly support this hypothesis. 50 percent of the respondent’s family income was reported below Rs.
