The USAID Vision for Action on ending child marriage and meeting the needs of married children outlines a plan for ensuring the rights of children to meet their full potential. The document includes a statement of the problem and explains the strategic underpinnings of USAID’s commitment to this issue–such as the link with the agency commitment to end gender-based violence. Following key principles for action, the vision paper outlines a strategy to prioritize efforts according to prevalence rates, risk due to geographic instability, and the presence of strong stakeholders and partners to join in the fight against the problem. The paper ends with practical examples of promising interventions to ensure a child’s rights.
