Child Watch is an initiative
of the Middle East Journal of Family Medicine and was originally
formed to assist Iraqi children who are suffering greatly from
lack of medical resources and child size devices, as well as
the psychological aspects
of prolonged warfare.
Since then we find that many
of the problems extend to the rest of the Middle East region
and indeed the world. There is also a lack of focus globally
on child-specific aspects of many medical conditions.
We are taking therefore both an academic and a practical approach
to child health. We welcome articles on any topic related to
aspects of child health and we also hope to provide practical
assistance where possible. We also welcome your ideas and your
advice about effective programs in your own country or region.
I thank you all for supporting this initiative.
