Children heath is fundamental in every society, therefore it is important to preserve and enhance it.
Unfortunately, there are many health challenges for children like communicable and non-communicable diseases, nutritional issues, alongside with mental and behavioural problems. All these issues should be addressed since they act as impediments for children’s wellbeing and development.
We should note that more than half of children’s deaths are due to conditions that could be prevented or treated before having a fatal outcome.
Children that grow up in marginalised population like migrant or low SES families, have to deal with more struggles in their everyday life, therefore they are more prone to certain diseases.
