Global child health: Social impacts, emerging mortality issues and refugee challenges

You are invited to the Royal Society of Medicine’s Global child health: Social impacts, emerging mortality issues and refugee challenges in January 2020 in London.

 

This event will explore current issues in global child health and how these impact children both at home and abroad.

 

This is the first-ever RSM meeting focusing on global child health. The day involves an exciting mix of world-renowned expert speakers, a practical session to experience a resuscitation course designed for low-income countries and hearing about the experiences of children affected by global issues here in the UK.

Topics include:

  • The main causes of mortality worldwide, including new and emerging problems
  • How social determinants such as education and political unrest can impact on child health
  • The history and changes in disease vaccinations, plus the factors affecting vaccination uptake and their impacts both at home and abroad
