Children in Institutions: The Global Picture

Date Published: 11/11/15

The first in our series of factsheets, 'Children in Institutions'. This publication maps the number of children living in institutions worldwide. One estimate puts the total at up to eight million, though, given gaps in global statistics and indications that there are many unregistered children’s homes, the true figure may well be much higher.
