Download the new report Children, ICTs and Development: Capturing the potential, meeting the challenges
Numerous countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America are now witnessing impressive ICT based efforts to improve maternal health, to register childbirth, to empower youth with knowledge about HIV prevention and much more. The new report is one of the first formal research studies to review the impact of ICT4D specifically on children.
UNICEF is committed to overcoming barriers affecting the world’s most marginalized children, and there are increasing opportunities to harness the potential of ICT to empower disadvantaged communities. UNICEF has announced a focus on 'nnovation for equity'in 2014, dedicating "State of the World’s Children", its flagship publication, to this theme. The equity perspective - on gender, ethnicity, age, education and rural/urban divide - is a consistent theme throughout the new ICT4D report.
