DGKJ supports Budapest Declaration about "Children on the Move"



At its Annual Conference in Budapest in October 2017, the International Society for Social Pediatrics and Child Health (ISSOP), paediatricians and child health professionals published a declaration focused "On the Rights, Health and Well-being of Children and Youth on the Move".

The German Society of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine (DGKJ) supports this declaration.

From the text:

Paediatricians and child health providers should employ evidence-based policies, protocols and practices for program development, implementation and evaluation. As such:

• Paediatricians and child health providers should work with colleagues in a transdisciplinary approach to ensure children live in nurturing rights-respecting environments; and within these settings, physical and mental health needs are identified and addressed whenever they occur.
• Trauma informed and integrated medical-behavioural policies and practices should be implemented in all aspects of programming.
• Ongoing formative and summative evaluations that contribute to continuous quality improvements in programs, systems and public policies should be implemented and integrate the metrics of child rights, social justice and health equity.
• Academic institutions should be engaged to support all aspects of regional, national and global initiatives, including professional education, research and evaluation, and dissemination of knowledge and experience.
