The well-being of a child is primordial to its development. Child welfare measures safeguard the wellbeing in children and young people. This helps them to develop to their full potential and shapes their readiness for adolescent and adult life.


In China, it is estimated that tens of millions children would benefit of additional child welfare interventions. Today, these children do not enjoy one or more of the most basic key-stones towards the enablement of their well-being. They may be challenged by shortage in essential needs, such as adequate food, clothing or housing; or face limited access to basic social services, including: birth registration, education or health care.Consequently, still too many children miss out to enjoy equal opportunities in development.

Child welfare systems form the foundation for child wellbeing and future human development. Investing in child welfare is one of the best ways to improve child health, education and well-being. This investment in basic public services shows most cost effective because of its potential to significantly reduce the number of children, youth and adults who otherwise would need high cost special protection measures.

Child Welfare Demonstration Project sites were chosen according to estimated most at risk populations based on a series of basic poverty, health and geographic isolation indicators. This led to a selection of 120 villages in 12 counties of five provinces (Henan, Shanxi, Yunnan, Sichuan and Xinjiang), covering a population of 242 945.


Fig 2. illustrates the geographic and demographic characteristics of the project sites. A baseline survey in the project area found that 20 % of the children surveyed (n=75976) missed out on one or more basic child welfare criteria. The main areas for social welfare interventions as identified by the baseline survey, included: 13% of children in the 7-15 years of age group reported not to have enough to eat; 69% of children with disabilities did not go school; 5% had no birth registration; and 2% lived without family care.Reported difficulties to access existing social services included: financial constraints physical accessibility language barriers and local traditions .It was noted that children may face a variety of vulnerabilities and that a comprehensive approach is required to reach the ultimate goal of equitable improvement in child well-being.
