OSORIO, Ana María  e  AGUADO, Luis Fernando. A look at the childhood situation in the Province of Valle del Cauca.. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2010, vol.8, n.2, pp.1169-1193. ISSN 1692-715X.

In this document we identify a set of indicators at departmental and municipal level (as far as available information permits) with a perspective on childhood. These indicators permit the analysis of the well-being of children and the compliance with their rights in different areas: health, education, nutrition, decent dwelling, and the exposure to early risks such as child labor and maternity. The construction of indicators at municipal level which reflect well-being and/or compliance with children's rights offers an opportunity to obtain a complete picture of the situation regarding childhood in one department, and constitutes an extremely important tool in the design of public policy and the focus on spending. The indicators for Valle del Cauca presented here reflect geographical inequalities in the provision of, and access to, basic social facilities; here there is evidence of great disparity among towns compared with the departmental average and the city of Cali. The greatest differences are concentrated in some towns in the north of Valle and Buenaventura. All of this lays down important challenges in public policy, and invites debate, analysis and of the visualization of the living conditions of children in Valle del Cauca.

Palavras-chave : Childhood; Valle del Cauca; living conditions; social services; regional inequities.
