In difficult living environments, thousands of children lack the care and support they need to grow up healthy. These gaps have serious consequences for their development and can result in an increased risk of chronic disease in adulthood. At the very heart of a child’s living environment, the professionals from community social pediatrics centres work together with organizations and institutions.
With the assistance of dedicated volunteers, these teams care for, support and equip children and their families. This unique care model combines medicine, social work and law by placing the child at the centre of the approach, while respecting all of his or her fundamental rights.
