Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 September 2019).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: global pediatrics; childhood poverty; health disparities
This Special Issue of Children will focus on the health impact on children experiencing migration as refugees, immigrants, and those internally displaced within their own country due to war and conflict. Topics to be explored will include, but will not be limited to, the epidemiology of displacement, adverse health conditions, trauma and mental health, best practices and care corrdination. We will also explore specific populations such as children with disabilites, unaccompanied minors and child separation at international borders. The Special Issue will conclude with a examination of new clinical guidelines, the development of new care systems and the advocacy for new policies addressing these children in need.
