Child Death Reviews (CDRs) use an intersectoral approach to understand and prevent child deaths. This project has been implemented by the Children’s Institute in collaboration with the Division of Forensic Medicine, University of Cape Town for the Western Cape and the Forensic Pathology Services, KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health for Kwa-zulu Natal.
The 2017 South African Early Childhood Review is now out! The review contains statistics on over 40 indicators covering the demography of young children (0 – 6 year olds), their living environments, and service delivery across various sectors.
"Congratulations on a fantastic year and for taking the CI to new heights!"

The Children’s Institute has won a coveted 2017 African Excellence Award for the media campaign that, in 2016, marked the tenth anniversary of its flagship publication, the South African Child Gauge®.
