"UNICEF's 'Rights' Focus Is All Wrong
The United Nations Children's Fund (search) (UNICEF) has just released its annual "The State of the World's Children" report for 2005.
Using words like "catastrophe," UNICEF's Executive Director Carol Bellamy warns that the "triple whammy" of AIDS (search), conflict and poverty
has reversed previous gains on children's survival, health and education.
But critics of UNICEF claim the agency and Bellamy have contributed to the crisis by focusing on political causes and steering UNICEF away from the
"core business" of ensuring children's survival.
Richard Horton, editor of the prestigious medical journal The Lancet, has published a blistering editorial, which calls Bellamy's direction
Bellamy’s “rights-based approach” (focusing on children’s “rights” as opposed to their simple physical survival), Horton said, has also been
devastating to children, an estimated 10 million of whom die from preventable causes before the age of five every year."
Yet another reason to end the UN. Social engineering instead of feeding the kids. This article speaks to radical feminisim diverting FOOD and
medicine from kids worldwide.
