UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund) has placed its annual report, Progress of Nations, online. The report examines the situation of children in the world today and reviews how nations have actively addressed children's social and health situations. The 1998 report specifically addresses children's civil rights, including the right to be registered at birth, a right that makes possible access to health and education benefits. Also addressed in this year's report: the progress of childhood immunization programs, issues related to adolescence in developing countries, and the struggles of the homeless in industrialized countries. The Statistical Tables provide "a summary of the year 2000 goals agreed to by almost all nations at the 1990 World Summit for Children." The full report is available in .pdf format at the web site.
