Pediatric issues in complex emergencies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Complex emergencies represent the final pathway of disrupted states leading to conflict and war. Victims of complex emergencies are primarily civilians, with children predominating. The decade of the 1990s has led to the professionalization of relief workers and improved standards of care. Pediatric providers have assumed roles as consultants, advocates and practitioners of care, but future requirements call for increased capacity and capability to meet pediatric demands.
