The State of the World's Children 1993 notes that the means to end mass malnutrition, preventable disease and widespread illiteracy among the world’s children are available. The report advocates for a worldwide movement to protect children from the worst aspects of poverty and argues that such movement would strengthen efforts to promote environmental protection, sustainable economic growth, gender equality, and political stability. It calls for the involvement of all sectors of the global society, including governments, the media, health and education professionals, and non-governmental organizations. 1.
