Reaching the unreached: a miracle in the making.

Journal Article

The survival and well-being of children is identified as the primary frontier of international health. In this regard, 1990 is identified as the most historic year ever in world history for children, and the achievements of the Universal Child Immunization program in immunizing 80% of children of the Third World under one year of age by December 1990 and the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the World Summit for Children are cited. The importance of the world community exercising its capacity to act on a common problem together, of the health services taking on a much stronger social purpose, and of the tireless and dedicated spirits in these efforts is stressed as essential for making a much better world for children in the centuries to come.
