CHILD2015 Forum – and why ISSOP members should join
For ESSOP to become ISSOP, a huge stride is needed. To be truly global, we need to embrace a new audience with quite different socio-economic status as well as a different agenda of disease and health. We need to be able to discuss our unique perspective in relation to malnutrition and malaria, HIV and human development, child survival and the MDGs. But help is at hand! The CHILD2015 forum brings together health professionals from North and South around the following goals –
CHILD2015 addresses the information and learning needs of those responsible for the care of children in developing countries, including mothers, fathers and family caregivers as well as health workers. Its remit includes children’s rights to health and healthcare, and the social determinants of health.
The goal of CHILD2015 is: By 2015, every child worldwide will have access to an informed healthcare provider.
ISSOP members have been invited to contribute owing to our knowledge and expertise in children’s rights and the social determinants of health, and we have a great opportunity here to ensure that health care providers are well informed in relation to social issues in health as well as biomedical causes of illness. We can also learn ourselves, and gain new members and colleagues.
