Forgotten Voices: The World of Urban Children in India
27 Jun 2020
The number of urban poor in India is growing rapidly, and the disparity they face in accessing essential services is growing larger. According to this report by Save the Children and PWC, urban development schemes and health programs may not adequately consider the children’s health, growth, safety, and participation. The report recommends a greater focus on smaller urban centers, where 68% of India’s urban population is concentrated. It further elucidates that to reap the demographic dividend, interventions for children and adolescents take place in 6 key areas: urban governance, nutrition, WASH, education, child protection, and Urban Resilience. This report is a useful study for urban governance bodies, implementing organizations, donors, and those developing urban health programs.
