Zambia is a country of young people, with the majority of the population under the age of 18 (53.4 per cent). The estimated median age is 16.7 years (2015), which is one of the lowest in the region and globally.
Many of these children are affected by both monetary and non-monetary poverty - an estimated 54.5 per cent of the population lives below the national poverty line. Gender inequality, household poverty and the expansion of peri-urban populations are some of the systematic challenges to realizing the rights of children.
Over the last decade, Zambia has made progress on child health and nutrition, including the reduction in maternal and child mortality rates.
