There is a growing global consensus in favour of family-based alternatives to institutional care for children. No residential institution --no matter how well meaning-- can replace the family environment so essential to every child. This Innocenti Insight examines efforts to prevent the institutionalization of children in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Italy, and Spain. It focuses on public and private initiatives as well as on local and national policies. The study states that policies to discourage institutionalization should be strengthened and alternatives encouraged. This includes raising public awareness.
