Global Childhood Report: Togo is 22nd in Africa

(Togo First) - Over the past two decades, Togo’s score on the Global Childhood Report grew by 103 points to 679 points. In the 2019 edition of this index published by NGO Save The Children, the country occupies the 22nd position in Africa.  

The report ranks countries that defend child rights most. To this end, it assesses criteria such as nutrition, access to health and education, physical integrity, equality, access to ICT, etc. 

In West Africa, Togo did better than Benin (27th with 631pts), Côte d’Ivoire (31st, 608pts) or Burkina Faso (44th, 565pts) but was far behind others like Ghana (763pts) and Senegal (691pts).

Worldwide, as child mortality and labor reduced over the period reviewed, Africa was the continent that recorded the highest progression on the index. Across the continent, countries where child conditions improved the most are Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Niger and Burkina Faso.

At the top of the index in Africa are Tunisia (929pts), Mauritius (919pts) and Algeria (907pts). Last is the Central African Republic according to the report.
