The State of Children in OIC Member Countries
Date : 18 June 2015

This report provides a detailed analysis and evaluation of the state of children in OIC countries. The report gauges the performance of OIC countries in four dimensions: child health and well-being, child nutrition and food security, basic education and schooling and child protection and welfare by analyzing the latest data on indicators like child mortality trends, prevalence of under nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, school enrolment and attendance and incidence of child labour and maltreatment. Results of data analyzed show that OIC countries, as a group, are still lagging behind the world and non-OIC developing countries averages. In particular, the situation remained significantly poor in OIC countries located in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa region. The report concludes with policy recommendations aiming to enhance the implementation of interventions both at national and intra-OIC and international cooperation level to improve the state of children in OIC countries.
