The International Society for Social Pediatrics & Child Health (ISSOP), the International Pediatric Association (IPA) and the International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse & Neglect (ISPCAN) have been allies working in the field on prevention and amelioration of child abuse, neglect and exploitation for the past few years. We have had direct and indirect relationships coordinating and supporting regional and global learning events over the years with mutual participation in various events. There are clearly shared visions and goals about ending violence against children. This is an early advocacy effort that has come out of this partnership.


The IPA has written an open letter to the Lancet and to the Secretary General UN to Protect Children Of War. IPA has started a campaign #ProtectChildrenOfWar.

Congratulations to our members Tony Waterston and Rosie Kyeremateng who have been working hard in order to have the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health take an important decision at their last AGM, in direct line with ISSOP statement on Conflict interest with baby food industry.

Tony Waterston: "This afternoon there was a victory for breast feeding at the RCPCH AGM. We are hoping that this victory will influence world paediatrics towards a less corrupting stance in relation to corporate power."

Here is the reaction of the RCPCH President: http://www.rcpch.ac.uk/news/rcpch-agm-formula-milk-motion-outcome
