During conflicts, natural disasters and other emergencies, children’s health needs can be neglected – to devastating effect.

Newborns, children, and mothers are often cut off from basic and essential care, including life-saving medicines and supplies. The risk of disease and malnutrition soars. And adolescents become more vulnerable to sexual violence, a situation exacerbated by the lack of critical health care and services.
