Violence Against Children: Global Perspectives on Resilience, Response and Health Outcomes
Nov. 1, 2013
Save the date! The 6th Annual Pediatric Global Health Conference will be held Nov. 1, 2013. The topic this year is, "Violence Against Children: Global Perspectives on Resilience, Response and Health Outcomes."
Leila Zerrougui Ms. Leila Zerrougui was appointed Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict at the Under Secretary-General level in September 2012. In this capacity, she serves as a moral voice and independent advocate to build awareness and give prominence to the rights and protection of boys and girls affected by armed conflict.
Violence occurs in every country in the world, has devastating effects on the health and well-being of children, and negatively affects their ability to learn and their social and emotional development. Violence is often deeply rooted in cultural, economic and social practices and inhibits the potential for children to contribute to society. This conference will seek to explore:
The global developmental and psychosocial consequences of violence against children
The global response to violence against children
The long-term implications of violence for children, and society as a whole
Tools for professionals who work with children exposed to violence
Through expert faculty presentations, a keynote address and interactive panel discussions, this conference will provide conference attendees opportunities to understand the global reality and response to violence against children. Tools for clinicians working with children exposed to violence will also be explored.
Selected participants will be notified by October 1, 2013.
