Beyond the monetary dimension

Equity for Children, launched this week a report that includes for the first time non-monetary
dimensions to assess child poverty and the wellbeing of children. It was published in
partnership with UNICEF Argentina and two reputed academic institutions. The report reveals
that 48% of Argentinian children and adolescents are deprived of at least one (of five)
dimensions of wellbeing. Besides being monetary poor, children also suffer from other types of
deprivations such as an adequate nutrition, education, safe areas to live and play, or access to
health services and ultimately, that the inequality gap widens.
