Protect my future: Child protection and health and survival

This paper, commissioned by Family for Every Child and written by Emily Delap is part of an inter-agency series on the links between child protection and major development goals. It was  written for submission to the United Nations consultation: ‘Health in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

The paper focuses on the inter-dependence between efforts to reduce the exploitation, abuse and neglect of children and global goals on health and survival as articulated by the current Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It argues that for the mutual benefit of both these areas, the framework that will replace the MDGs in 2015 must both continue to include a focus on health and child survival, and encompass particular goals and indicators on children’s protection.

Other papers in the series address subjects including governance, growth, equity, population dynamics and emergencies.
