SA reports on sale of children, prostitution and pornography

Edited and developed for publication by Advocacy Aid, South Africa's combined report for the period 2003 to 2011 outlines the extensive measures South Africa has taken in terms of the United Nations' Optional Protocol on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography. A crucial aim is to ensure that vulnerable groups such as children enjoy the protection afforded to them by the Constitution.

Further to this, children have been placed at the centre of the new National Development Plan 2030 (NDP), which provides a blueprint for the next phase of the country's developmental evolution. 

The NDP focuses on nation-wide action for reducing poverty and inequality, and among the priority interventions for children are greater and stronger investments in children's rights to nutrition, early childhood development, education, and safety and protection.
