An alternative report to the UN prepared by the NGO ‘Save the Children,’ which sums up the observations of NGOs working in the area of child protection, and provides an analysis of the situation in Latvia. The report is much more critical of the situation in Latvia regarding the protection of the rights of children and their health than the opinion stated by state institutions (the data also differ). The report also includes letters from the organisation and appeals to the government and legislators.
