This annotated bibliography provides a brief overview of the state of evidence on gender-transformative child protection.
Gender-transformative child protection seeks to challenge gender dynamics, and actively confronts gender norms and unequal gender relations that drive violence against children and hinder effective response systems.
This annotated bibliography seeks to update the knowledge base on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of children, adolescents and young people through exploring evidence and literature on this important topic in low- and middle-income countries.
Paying particular attention to literature published within the last decade, this report covers the following key thematic areas as they relate to SRHR:

Child Labour in Emergencies: Introducing the New Interagency Toolkit
The Toolkit, produced by the Child Labour Task Force, co-chaired by Plan International and the ILO, was launched in November 2016 during the Annual Meeting of the Alliance in Geneva.
Plan International UK and Plan International commissioned this report to clarify and develop a conceptualisation of adolescence during emergencies and to summarise the data available on adolescents in humanitarian settings. It also maps out the work Plan International are doing with and for adolescents in humanitarian action, identifies trends in the work of other agencies and proposes recommendations for Plan International’s future work.
The report provides evidence, useful programming tips and key recommendations to strengthen our targeting of adolescents during emergencies.

Plan International is responding to the Zika virus in several communities in the Americas as concerns grow over its “explosive” spread.
Zika virus has been steadily spreading across the region and has now affected 23 countries and territories. The virus has no cure nor any preventive vaccine. It is being linked to hundreds of cases of babies born with unusually small heads in Brazil and has caused considerable alarm.

In the months leading up to the Summit, ensuring that children’s voices are heard in these discussions is a key priority for Plan International.

This ground breaking report, produced in collaboration with London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, reveals that children with disabilities in developing countries are being held back from an education.
Based upon Plan’s dataset of 1.4 million sponsored children, the report compares sponsored children with a disability to those without, from 30 countries worldwide.
Key findings include:
children with disabilities are 10 times more likely not to attend school
En la comunidad internacional, cada vez existe más concienciación sobre los problemas causados por la escasez de datos sobre niños y niñas con discapacidades. Actualmente hay aproximadamente 150 millones de niños y niñas con discapacidades en el mundo. Enfrentan muchos obstáculos en lo que respecta a su inclusión y participación en actividades cotidianas, según desprende el Informe mundial sobre la discapacidad realizado por el Banco Mundial y la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS).
Au sein de la communauté internationale, on est devenu progressivement plus conscient des problèmes occasionnés par le peu de données dont on dispose sur les enfants handicapés. Il existe aujourd’hui quelque 150 millions d’enfants handicapés à travers le monde. De nombreux obstacles à leur désir d’être inclus et de participer aux activités quotidiennes se dressent devant eux, comme le rappelle le Rapport mondial sur le handicap produit conjointement par la Banque mondiale et l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS).
Teenage girls vanish during disasters, says report
8 October 2013: Teenage girls in disasters are being drastically failed when they are at their most vulnerable, according to a major new report by Plan International.
Adolescent girls have particular needs for protection, healthcare and education which are not being met, or even recognised, by governments and humanitarians in emergencies, it finds.
Children with disabilities across West Africa are subject to profound levels of poverty, exclusion and discrimination. They are widely excluded from education and denied access to protection services as well as other rights enjoyed by abled children. This report outlines why children with disabilities are denied these basic rights; why they are outside the circle. It calls on governments, NGOs, community groups and leaders to take action to put an end to this discrimination.
STREET children need greater protection and recognition if the Millennium Development Goals are to be achieved, say global children's NGO Plan International.

From the 5th to the 10th of May 2002, The
United Nations, New York held a Special Session on Children.
In 2006, Plan adopted a new framework for
its response to AIDS called Circle of Hope. Central to this framework is
a program philosophy that starts with the rights of children and addresses
these rights in a manner that is both comprehensive and appropriate to
the child's context.
The Circle of Hope applies the practice of child-centred community development to the program response to AIDS. Child-centred community development is the overarching program philosophy of Plan. It defines Plan's role in international development.
