Baby being examined in Darfur, Africa. Increase in child population on the continent should be three times higher than in the 50s.

The UN Fund for Children and Youth (UNICEF) estimates that the increase of children in the world population reaches about 4% by 2025. The africa will have one in three births, one of the largest countries in the Southern Hemisphere According to the agency, 30% of births in the world are recorded in African countries.

The data was released, on Tuesday (20) to mark the Universal Children's Day. The increase in the child population on the African continent should be three times higher than in the 50s.

For UNICEF, the most important is to understand demographic trends for the children of the 21st century. According to the UN agency's study, nearly one in three children under 18 years is African.

The UNICEF survey concluded that the United States is the only country with high income who must register a smaller increase in 2025.

The agency warns that demographic changes concerning children may pose a challenge to public policy makers in the decades following the deadline for achieving the Millennium Development Goals, scheduled for 2015.

You DanZhen, an author of the study, said it is necessary to guarantee the rights of children. He recalled that because they can not vote, minors are not heard, in many cases, by governments who make decisions about funding, for example.

In the list of countries with the largest number of child population, China and India should focus most of the group. Nigeria already has the highest growth in the range below 18 years.
