“The Lottery of Birth”, A Special Lecture Presentation of the Latest Save The Children Publication

On March 17th, 2015, Jose Manuel Roche, Head of Research at Save the Children UK, gave a special lecture on the organization's latest publication, The Lottery of Birth, during the "Children’s Rights, Poverty and Equity" class taught by Equity for Children's Executive Director, Alberto Minujin.
