An important international recognition for Cyprus for children welfare. According to the annual global childhood report Save the Children, Cyprus ranked 13th out of 176 countries. 

At the end of childhood index results represents the average level of performance across a collection of eight indices: child health, education, labor, marriage, childbirth, and violence.

Scores are calculated on a scale of 1 to 1,000, with nations where few kids miss scoring 940 or more, some missing 760 to 939, many missing 600 to 759, most missing 380 to 599, while those scoring 379 or less are defined as almost all missing out.

First, with an almost ideal 989, Singapore is strongly accompanied by Sweden (986).

Except for Singapore and South Korea, all nations in the top ten are in Europe.

Cyprus shares its 13th position with Spain, with a score of 977, placing the nation in the top classification along with another 37 nations.

Ahead of Australia and Switzerland, it is ranked. 

The Central African Republic is on the other end of the scale, scoring only 394. 

Like most nations, Cyprus has enhanced its rating since the year 2000 when it was 960.

Overall, there has been global progress, the report says. The condition has enhanced in 173 out of the 176 nations which are part of the research.

"Children born today have a better chance of growing healthy, trained and shielded with the chance to reach their full potential than at any moment in history," the study said. "Even a generation ago, a kid has twice as likely to die before reaching the age of 5, 70% more likely to be engaged in child labor, and 20% more likely to be murdered."
