More countries joining the Global Study on Child Poverty and Disparities

The number of countries participating in the Global Study on Child Poverty and Disparities is growing, currently there are 49 countries that form part of this initiative. The latest countries to officially join are Vanuatu, Lesotho and the Indian Ocean Islands of Comoros, Seychelles, La Reunion and Mauritius which alongside Madagascar are under the guidance of the Indian Ocean Commission.

These new countries as well as the others are reminded of resources available to them, such as peer review of their reports, joining discussions on the Child Poverty Network and the common Global Study Visual Identity that can be applied to their reports and other communication material.

We welcome these new countries on board!
