Part one reviews the commitments made to children in 1990 at the World Summit for Children. Part two summarizes the progress made in implementing the World Summit in three main areas: health, nutrition, water and sanitation; education and literacy; children's protection and civil rights. Part three, the final section, offers perspectives for the future by looking at lessons learned from the past decade.
