WHY FOCUS ON PAEDIATRICS?

Children are the most vulnerable, and make up the largest proportion of MSF beneficiaries in the humanitarian emergency context. The paediatric needs far overweigh available resources such as trained paediatric staff in humanitarian settings, access to essential drugs, diagnostic and medical equipment. Moreover there are important research gaps and topics such as neonatology, paediatric neurology, shock fluid therapy and palliative care are just a few examples of the large array of conditions where humanitarian paediatrics is lagging behind.
