From Strong Beginnings to Youth Resilience: Pathways Out of Adversity

This morning, the sixth annual Report to Congress on Public Law 109-95 was released. Titled From Strong Beginnings to Youth Resilience: Pathways Out of Adversity, this report describes the objectives of the U.S. Government Action Plan, and how it will be implemented. Children growing up in adversity – serious and prolonged deprivation and danger – require multidimensional assistance and support. The Action Plan was launched in December 2012. It is the first-ever strategic guidance for U.S. Government international assistance for children 0 to 18 years of age who are affected by HIV and AIDS, trafficked, orphaned, exploited for child labor, in disasters, recruited as soldiers, neglected or in other vulnerable states.

We are also launching the brand new Children in Adversity website, which provides an overview of the U.S. Government’s efforts to implement the Action Plan. It also includes links to U.S. Government agency- and department-specific implementation plans, which specify how each entity included in the Action Plan will work to achieve its objectives.

Finally, the new website includes a global profile of children in adversity, which has the most up-to-date statistics and status indicators.
