Overview

An expert in her field, Helen Penn discusses the inequalities between and within countries of childhood poverty and how this poverty is recognized and defined through the following case-studies:

  • Kazakhstan - once part of the Soviet Union
  • Swaziland - a country in Southern Africa devastated by HIV and AIDS
