|Samenvatting||Wars, conflicts and natural disasters worldwide are putting millions of children at risk.The failure to protect children from these escalating threats not only results in personal tragedy but carries a long-term social cost as well, including the spread of HIV/AIDS, an elevated maternal and infant mortality rate, a loss of education and a generation of marginalized youth. Save the Children seeks to integrate child protection into all its emergency response programs, at every stage of the crisis. As part of this integration, Save the Children has developed strategies and programs to identify and prevent abuse; restore dignified living conditions for children; and promote children’s rights|
