Recent from World Health Organization (WHO):
World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Trailer – A Future for the World’s Children Documentary” – below is their description.
This is the trailer version of a film in which we present the key findings of the seminal WHO-UNICEF-Lancet report “A future for the world’s children?” to help governments, communities and industry make real change for the world’s children.
Today’s children face an uncertain future. The climate emergency, conflict and migration, pervasive inequalities, and predatory commercial practices threaten the health and future of children everywhere; with COVID-19 and a global economic downturn only adding to these issues. Only by working together, with children at the center of our political, economic and social action, can we make the world that’s worthy of them.
