Save the Children are proud to partner with Imperial College London and a host of medical and operational experts to support children who’ve been injured in conflict.
Central to this partnership is a practical field manual which Save the Children is distributing to first responders, doctors and surgeons and those providing aftercare for children in the most dangerous places in the world.
One in five children worldwide live in areas affected by conflict today.
Every day, in places like Syria and Yemen, healthcare professionals and frontline responders are working tirelessly to save the lives of children caught up and injured by conflict.
This manual is a comprehensive guide for local medical teams who are often forced to operate on and treat children in difficult circumstances with limited specialist training and resources in how to do so. It gives them the evidence-based practices and confidence to look after children right from the point of injury through to rehabilitation and longer-term mental health and psychosocial support.
