Publications

Every year, Save the Children publishes a series of reports that explore issues faced by children around the world.

We want to get the word out about issues facing children.

From healthcare and education to conflict, humanitarian emergencies, violence and finance, our reports investigate how children are affected and what actions we must take to change the way the world treats children. Our reports show the positive impact our work has on the lives of children, and are often written in collaboration with our partner organisations.
