Rapport mondial sur la prévention des traumatismes chez l’enfant

Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS), Fonds des Nations Unies pour l’enfance (UNICEF), Eds.: Peden, Margie et al., (2008)


Plus de 2000 enfants meurent chaque jour des suites de traumatismes involontaires ou accidentels. Chaque année des dizaines de milliers d'autres sont hospitalisés pour des blessures qui les laissent souvent handicapés à vie.
Ce rapport conjoint de l'OMS et de l'UNICEF établit le premier bilan mondial des principales causes à l'origine des traumatismes involontaires touchant des enfants: les accidents de la route, les noyades, les brûlures, les chutes et les empoisonnements.

Narrowing the Gaps: The power of investing in the poorest children

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), (2017)


UNICEF analysis indicates that:
- Investments that increase access to high-impact health and nutrition interventions by poor groups have saved almost twice as many lives as equivalent investments in non-poor groups.
- Access to high-impact health and nutrition interventions has improved rapidly among poor groups in recent years, leading to substantial improvements in equity.
- During the period studied, absolute reductions in under-five mortality rates associated with improvements in intervention coverage were three times faster among poor groups than non-poor groups.
- Because birth rates were higher among the poor, the reduction in the under-five mortality rate translated into 4.2 times more lives saved for every 1 million people. Indeed, of the 1.1 million lives saved across the 51 countries during the final year studied for each country, nearly 85 per cent were among the poor.
- Intensified focus on equity-enhancing policies and investments can help countries achieve the Sustainable Development Goal newborn and child mortality targets (SDG3.2).

Stratégie 2016-2030 en matière de santé

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), (2016)


En s’appuyant sur les ODD et sur la Stratégie mondiale, ainsi que sur la Convention relative aux droits de l’enfant (CRC) et sur la Convention sur l’élimination de toutes les formes de discrimination à l’égard des femmes (CEDAW ), l’UNICEF imagine un monde où aucun enfant ne décède de maladies évitables, et où chacun d’entre eux réalise pleinement son potentiel sur le plan de la santé et du bien-être. Pour les cinq premières années (2016-20), la Stratégie de l’UNICEF en matière de santé (ci-après dénommée «la Stratégie») fixe deux grands objectifs :
1. Mettre fin aux décès évitables de mères, de nouveau-nés et d’enfants;
2. Promouvoir la santé et le développement de tous les enfants.

Pour atteindre ces objectifs, la Stratégie prend en considération les besoins des enfants en matière de santé à tous les stades de la vie.
