You are watching UNICEF Television:

It has been five years since the world’s leaders gathered for a Special Session of the UN General assembly … to adopt an agenda for the future focused directly on children.

It’s very important that as we create a world fit for children, that we address these cultural norms and attitudes in our programming. And that we move from anecdotal evidence to baseline data.

There is also much work to be done in improving young people’s knowledge of HIV and AIDS. Over 10 million people between the ages of 15 and 24 are infected with HIV.
