Global launch of Child Watch


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.

Our first donation has been received from Mr Andrew Currie, of Melbourne, Australia, specifically to assist institutionalized blind girls of Rawalpindi, Pakistan, and we thank Mr Currie for his own initiative.

Please send articles or assistance, to publisher@mejfm.com.

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.
