Health and Children on the Move in Emergencies and Humanitarian Settings

Children who are on the move become part of the world’s most vulnerable populations, prone to health issues including respiratory infections, vaccine-preventable diseases, such as measles and gastrointestinal illnesses, as a result of poor living conditions or suboptimal access to hygiene during migration. This document provides an overview of the health challenges children on the move face, UNICEF's response, and the way forward.
