The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) reported that 333 million children, equivalent to about 1 in 6 of the world's child population, live in extreme poverty.

UNICEF and the World Bank jointly published the report titled "Children Living in Poverty According to the International Hunger Line". The report pointed out that the number of children living below the limit of 2.15 dollars a day and considered to be in "extreme poverty" decreased by 13 percent from 2013 to 2022, from 383 million to 333 million, and it was noted that at this rate, the goal of ending poverty in children will not be achieved by 2030.

Pointing out that the Sub-Saharan Africa region bears the biggest burden in child poverty, the report stated that 40 percent of children in "extreme poverty" in the world are in this region.

The report also pointed out that the child poverty rate in this region increased from 54.8 percent in 2013 to 71.1 percent in 2022.
