Scope and Contents

This microfilm contains pamphlets, periodicals, and other miscellaneous items addressing a range of issues related to youth and children in Peru, such as labor, violence, health, education, and political participation and rights. The material is produced by a variety of sources, including Peruvian non-governmental organizations (NGOs), youth and children's movements, two international NGOs (Pathfinder and Rädda Barnen), two state institutions (CEDRO and MIMDES), a Peruvian university (Universidad del Pacífico), and several inter-institutional coalitions.

In the case of undated documents, either the symbol "s.d." or brackets are used to indicate the approximate year of publication. Undated items are either placed with other undated material at the beginning of the publishing institution's section, or among other material whose dates of publication are approximately the same. Unidentified publishers and indicated by the abbreviation "s.n.".


The material is arranged into six files, each covering a specific subject area relating to youth and children. Items are generally arranged alphabetically by publishing organization; within each publishing organization, the items are ordered chronologically according to year of publication. The one exception is File 6: Programa Nacional de Municipios Escolares, which consists exclusively of documents produced by Acción por los Niños, the primary executor of the school-based program. File 4: Health includes material addressing a wide array of health and child development issues, such as mental health, sexuality and child abuse.
