This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Infant mortality Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

This death toll is measured by the infant mortality rate (IMR), which is the number of deaths of children under one year of age per 1000 live births. The under-five mortality rate is also an important statistic, considering the infant mortality rate focuses only on children under one year of age.Premature birth is the biggest contributor to the IMR. Other leading causes of infant mortality are birth asphyxia, pneumonia, congenital malformations, term birth complications such as abnormal presentation of the foetus umbilical cord prolapse, or prolonged labor, neonatal infection, diarrhea, malaria, measles and malnutrition. One of the most common preventable causes of infant mortality is smoking during pregnancy. Many factors contribute to infant mortality, such as the mother's level of education, environmental conditions, and political and medical infrastructure. Improving sanitation, access to clean drinking water, immunization against infectious diseases, and other public health measures can help reduce high rates of infant mortality. Child mortality is the death of a child before the child's fifth birthday, measured as the under-5 child mortality rate (U5MR). National statistics sometimes group these two mortality rates together. Globally, 9.2 million children die each year before their fifth birthday; more than 60% of these deaths are seen as being avoidable with low-cost measures such as continuous breast-feeding, vaccinations and improved nutrition.Infant mortality rate was an indicator used to monitor progress towards the Fourth Goal of the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations for the year 2015. It is now a target in the Sustainable Development Goals for Goal Number 3 ("Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages").Throughout the world, infant mortality rate (IMR) fluctuates drastically, and according to Biotechnology and Health Sciences, education and life expectancy in the country is the leading indicator of IMR. This study was conducted across 135 countries over the course of 11 years, with the continent of Africa having the highest infant mortality rate of any other region studied with 68 deaths per 1,000 live births.

Child Mortality A Serious Issue
 
02:01
Children are the building blocks of future .Able and energetic pool of young blood can only be harvested, if we focus on the health of child population. Child mortality is a worldwide issue .6 million children each year die before their 5th birthday. United Nations put focus on it by adding it as one of the goal in the millennium development goals. Unfortunately Pakistan comes to those countries that have poor index and indicators towards child health. The mortality rate is 79 child per 1000 child in a year.40% of children under age five to nine have stunted growth and malnourished .its commonly said that those who care about their present can have a secure future. If we want a healthy and energetic nation we have to care about our children. Read full article www.bqrnd.com
9 Child Safety Principles Every Parent Needs to Know
 
06:53
How to keep your children safe? Bumps and bruises are an inescapable part of childhood, but a light injury is only one step away from a fracture. To protect your kids, follow the principles of child safety. Keep in mind that the most important rules you need to follow are about behavior in the car as it’s the most dangerous mean of transport.

They must be provided with emergency release devices in case. Ensure secure fixing of furniture (especially of high cabinets) and any other things that can tip and fall. - The diet of children under the age of 5 shouldn’t contain round-shaped solid foods, such as sliced sausage, nut kernels, hard candies, grapes, and maize. - Go to chest compression and artificial respiration courses to perform CPR if necessary. - Hide matches and lighters from your children, and don’t keep lighters and other fire sources that look like toys in the house. - Reduce the time your child spends next to a hot stove, and install a protective barrier around the stove if possible. - More than half of all childhood intoxications are provoked by accidental medication intake. Keep all drugs (even vitamins) out of children’s reach. Never call medicine "candy" — it may provoke the child’s interest in them. - Keep gadgets that contain lithium batteries away from children. These include car alarms, clocks, remote controls, flameless candles, laser pointers, and flashlights. - Drain the tub immediately after you finish all bath procedures. Toilet lids, doors to the bathrooms, and laundry rooms should be permanently closed. - As a rule, tragedies in the water take place silently and within a minute. Therefore, watch your child, and don’t get distracted by reading books or talking on the phone. - “W-sitting” is one of the most common sitting positions for many kids. However, this position may cause serious orthopedic problems, delays in the development of postural control and stability, and motor skills. - Before letting your child ride a bike, teach them to engage in eye contact and give hand signals to both drivers and pedestrians. - A child can sit in an adult chair only if their height exceeds 4′6” and they weigh at least 70.8 lbs. - Seats for children under the age of 2 should be set against the car movement. Before you start the car, try “pinching” a belt, and if a fold formed — tighten it. The car seat shouldn’t move more than an inch.

What is CHILD MORTALITY? What does CHILD MORTALITY mean? CHILD MORTALITY meaning & definition. Child mortality, also known as under-5 mortality or child death, refers to the death of infants and children under the age of five or between the age of one month to four years depending on the definition. A child's death is emotionally and physically hard on the parents. Many deaths in the majority of the world go unreported since many poor families cannot afford to register their babies in the government registry. The same causes and preventative measures that apply to infant mortality (i.e. for children younger than one year old) also apply to understanding child mortality. Reduction of child mortality is the fourth of the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals. Rapid progress towards the Millennium Development Goals has resulted in a significant decline in preventable child deaths since 1990, with the global under-5 mortality rate declining by nearly half over this time period. While in 1990, 12.7 million children under age five died, in 2013 that number fell to 6.3 million children. However, despite advances, at the current pace the world will not meet the MDG target until 2026. Globally in 2013 3.7 million children aged one month to 4 years of age died, down from 7.6 million in 1990. About half of child deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa. Reduction of child mortality is the fourth of the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals.

Lower Infant Mortality Leading to More NDD
 
03:45
I have started reading this article: Language Assessment for Children With a Range of Neurodevelopmental Disorders Across Four Languages in South Africa by MaryAnn Romski, Juan Bornman, Rose A. Sevcik, Kerstin Tönsing, Andrea Barton-Hulsey, Refilwe Morwane, Ani Whitmore, and Robyn White. It is in AJSLP. (Romski et al.: Neurodevelopmental Disorders in South Africa). This one sentence, which is not the topic of the article, struck me with its implications: "Infant mortality rates in these countries are decreasing and leading to a higher prevalence of neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD)." Does lowering infant mortality necessarily lead to a higher incidence of neurodevelopmental disorders? Why? How?

Out Of School Children: Poor Health & Sanitation

Welcome to FIVE! With Halloween just around the corner, children will be running around the block snatching as much candy as a large, opaque garbage bag can withstand. Many kids will be tempted to indulge in the fruit of their labour, however, too many sweets at once is not good for the little one’s tummy and can make them sick. Speaking of sick, millions of children are out of school right now because of poor healthcare and sanitation. Find out how we can change that.

Study: Developed Nations That Require Most Vaccines Have Highest Infant Mortality Rates
 
07:42
Neil Z.Miller is a medical research journalist and the Director of the Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute (www.thinktwice.com). He has devoted the past 30 years to educating parents and health practitioners about vaccines, encouraging informed consent and non-mandatory laws. He is the author of several articles, studies, and books on vaccines, including Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies(www.vacbook.com), Vaccine Safety Manual for Concerned Families and Health Practitioners(updated 2nd edition), and Vaccines, Are They Really Safe and Effective? Past organizations that he has lectured for include the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, the International College of Integrative Medicine, the Hahnemann Academy of North America, and the Culture of Life Institute. Mr. Miller has a degree in psychology and is a member of Mensa. Mr. Miller began his crusade against mandatory vaccines when his wife was pregnant with their first child. Very little data could be found on this topic. His search for the truth led him to scientific journals where numerous studies warned that vaccines are often unsafe and ineffective. His shock and anger at the suppression of this information culminated in his passionate defense of parents seeking to make truly informed vaccine decisions while retaining the right to accept or reject them.

Maternal mortality rates are consistently greater for those states with the additional information from the separate question than for the states without it. In addition, maternal mortality rates tend to be greater after adopting the standard question than before. Research (83-85) done on this issue indicates that this increase represents an improvement in identifying maternal deaths. For example, a study in Maryland that used multiple data sources as the standard showed an improvement (from 62 percent to 98 percent) in identifying maternal deaths after adoption of a pregnancy checkbox item consistent with the 2003 standard certificate (85). In 1915, the maternal mortality rate was 607.9 deaths per 100,000 live births for the birth registration area.

Bill Gates, " Vaccinate to Depopulate": His Logic Explained
 
07:38
TrutherGirls T-Shirts: http://thetruthergirls.spreadshirt.com/ Bill Gates recently went on record at a TED conference declaring that his foundation's vaccine programs' goals were to reduce the poulation. This has led a lot of people to jump to the conclusion that he was saying his vaccines affect fertility. However, if you look at previous interviews on teh subject, you will see that it's not tat simple and that there is a lot of twisted logic involved. Bottom line: Gates is an admitted depopulationist.

Global Aging and Longevity Science | Colin Farrelly | TEDxQueensU
 
16:12
By 2050 there will be over 2 billion persons over the age of 60. Colin Farrelly is a political philosopher who has published 2 books and over 30 academic journal articles on the ethical and social significance of the “genetic revolution”. Farrelly characterizes the story of the aging of the human species as the story of the 3 “S’s”- (1) Success, (2) Significant Challenge and (3) Science. First, global aging is a SUCCESS story. Historically, life expectancy at birth for humanity did not exceed age 30, due to high rates of early and mid-life mortality. Life really was, as Thomas Hobbes eloquently phrased things, “nasty, brutish and short”. Today life expectancy is age 72, and will rise to 81 by the year 2100. The second story of global aging is the SIGNIFICANT CHALLENGE of promoting health in a world where the chronic diseases of late life are prevalent. As we get older our risks for multi-morbidity increase. Never before in our history has the inborn aging process itself posed a significant health threat to human populations. The third, and final, chapter in the story of global aging is the story of the SCIENCE and innovation needed to ensure we increase the human healthspan and compress the period of frailty, disability and disease at the end of life. This is most likely to come from an applied gerontological intervention that targets the most significant risk factor for all chronic diseases- aging itself. Continue the conversation with Colin and TEDxQueensU @ https://www.thinkwire.com/series/tedxqueensu-fast-forward-qk0tkzw7 Colin Farrelly is Professor and Queen’s National Scholar in the Department of Political Studies at Queen’s University. He has also held academic appointments at UCLA, Oxford University, Waterloo University, Manchester University, Birmingham University and the University of Waterloo. In the fall of 2018 Colin was the Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in the Social Sciences at the University of Hawaii. Colin is the author and editor of 6 books and approximately 50 journal articles in political science, philosophy, law, science and medicine. Most of his research focuses on the ethical and social implications of the genetic revolution (especially altering human aging). His recent books include Biologically Modified Justice (Cambridge University Press, 2016) and Genetic Ethics: An Introduction (Polity Books in 2018). Colin is also involved in volunteer initiatives to teach political philosophy and ethics to both inmates and children.

13 Year Old Toronto Boy Dies of H1N1
 
05:07
13-year-old Evan Frustaglio died on Monday,October 26 and it has been confirmed that he had H1N1 infection. The media is using the fact that he played in a hockey tournament after falling ill as proof of his good health and are using this to push the notion that any healthy child may die ofswine flu at any time and that all healthy children should be vaccinated. However, strenuous exercise during influenza infection is known to increase mortality. Articles on Evan's death: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/10/27/frustraglio-h1n1-toronto-hockey113.html http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...rticle1340374/ http://www.flutrackers.com/forum/showthread.php?p=310198 MSN article on exercise and influenza: http://health.msn.com/health-topics/cold-and-flu/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100205195# Study on exercise,influenza and mortality: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC263272/ A while ago,I had found awebsite promoting flu vaccine, which included an article about a 15-year-old boy who had developedsevere compartment syndrome and died after engaging in strenuous exercise while suffering from influenza. Because he wasfoundto have influenza, the site authors conclude the solution would beto vaccinate all children,while disregarding the role thatexercise played.

What is PERINATAL MORTALITY? What does PERINATAL MORTALITY mean? PERINATAL MORTALITY meaning

What is PERINATAL MORTALITY? What does PERINATAL MORTALITY mean? PERINATAL MORTALITY meaning - PERINATAL MORTALITY definition - PERINATAL MORTALITY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Perinatal mortality (PNM), also perinatal death, refers to the death of a fetus or neonate and is the basis to calculate the perinatal mortality rate. Variations in the precise definition of the perinatal mortality exist specifically concerning the issue of inclusion or exclusion of early fetal and late neonatal fatalities. The World Health Organization defines perinatal mortality as the "number of stillbirths and deaths in the first week of life per 1,000 total births, the perinatal period commences at 22 completed weeks (154 days) of gestation and ends seven completed days after birth", but other definitions have been used. The UK figure is about 8 per 1,000 and varies markedly by social class with the highest rates seen in Asian women. Globally about 2.6 million neonates died in 2013 before the first month of age down from 4.5 million in 1990. Preterm birth is the most common cause of perinatal mortality, causing almost 30 percent of neonatal deaths. Infant respiratory distress syndrome, in turn, is the leading cause of death in preterm infants, affecting about 1% of newborn infants. Birth defects cause about 21 percent of neonatal death. Fetal mortality refers to stillbirths or fetal death. It encompasses any death of a fetus after 20 weeks of gestation or 500 gm. In some definitions of the PNM early fetal mortality (week 20-27 gestation) is not included, and the PNM may only include late fetal death and neonatal death. Fetal death can also be divided into death prior to labor, antenatal (antepartum) death, and death during labor, intranatal (intrapartum) death. Early neonatal mortality refers to a death of a live-born baby within the first seven days of life, while late neonatal mortality covers the time after 7 days until before 28 days. The sum of these two represents the neonatal mortality. Some definitions of the PNM include only the early neonatal mortality. Neonatal mortality is affected by the quality of in-hospital care for the neonate. Neonatal mortality and postneonatal mortality (covering the remaining 11 months of the first year of life) are reflected in the Infant Mortality Rate. The PNMR refers to the number of perinatal deaths per 1,000 total births. It is usually reported on an annual basis. It is a major marker to assess the quality of health care delivery. Comparisons between different rates may be hampered by varying definitions, registration bias, and differences in the underlying risks of the populations. PNMRs vary widely and may be below 10 for certain developed countries and more than 10 times higher in developing countries . The WHO has not published contemporary data.

Dr Virginia Apgar: the crusader who brought down child mortality rates  honoured by Google Doodle
 
01:11
Dr Virginia Apgar is widely known for inventing the Apgar Score, a way to quickly assess the health of newborn children immediately after birth. Apgar’s invention has revolutionised child mortality rate from 1 in 30 in the 1950s to 1 in 500 today. In those days, newborn babies born deformed, had trouble breathing, were blue or were struggling to breathe were listed as stillborn and left to die. This deeply disturbed Apgar and motivated her to develop a score which scores newborn child between zero to ten on the basis of its health The score identifies five criterias- Appearance, Pulse, Grimace, Activity, Respiration. Soon it was found that babies could be revived through oxygen if attended within five minutes of being born. Dr Apgar was born on June 7, 1909, she never married and died on August 7, 1974

But more than 135 expectant and new mothers a day — or roughly 50,000 a year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — endure dangerous and even life-threatening complications that often leave them wounded, weakened, traumatized, financially devastated, unable to bear more children, or searching in vain for answers about what went wrong. For the past year, ProPublica and NPR have been examining why the U.S. has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the industrialized world. That relative high rate of death, though, has overshadowed the far more pervasive problem that experts call "severe maternal morbidity." Each year in the U.S., 700 to 900 women die related to pregnancy and childbirth. But for each of those women who die, up to 70 suffer hemorrhages, organ failure or other significant complications. That amounts to more than 1 percent of all births. The annual cost of these near deaths to women, their families, taxpayers and the health care system runs into billions of dollars. https://www.patreon.com/hollyseeliger https://www.makersupport.com/zoonpolitikon or support me on Paypal via my email "[email protected]" Holly Seeliger P.O.

The Polish physician Ludwik Rajchman is widely regarded as the founder of UNICEF and served as its first chairman from 1946. On Rajchman's suggestion, the American Maurice Pate was appointed its first executive director, serving from 1947 until his death in 1965. In 1950, UNICEF's mandate was extended to address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries everywhere. In 1953 it became a permanent part of the United Nations System, and the words "international" and "emergency" were dropped from the organization's name, making it simply the United Nations Children's Fund, retaining the original acronym, "UNICEF".UNICEF relies on contributions from governments and private donors. UNICEF's total income for 2015 was US$5,009,557,471 . Governments contribute two-thirds of the organization's resources. Private groups and individuals contribute the rest through national committees. It is estimated that 92 per cent of UNICEF revenue is distributed to program services. UNICEF's programs emphasize developing community-level services to promote the health and well-being of children. UNICEF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965 and the Prince of Asturias Award of Concord in 2006. Most of UNICEF's work is in the field, with a presence in 190 countries and territories. UNICEF's network of over 150 country offices, headquarters and other offices, and 34 National Committees carry out UNICEF's mission through programs developed with host governments. Seven regional offices provide technical assistance to country offices as needed. UNICEF's Supply Division is based in Copenhagen and serves as the primary point of distribution for such essential items as vaccines, antiretroviral medicines for children and mothers with HIV, nutritional supplements, emergency shelters, family reunification, and educational supplies. A 36-member executive board establishes policies, approves programs and oversees administrative and financial plans. The executive board is made up of government representatives who are elected by the United Nations Economic and Social Council, usually for three-year terms.

Breaking News  - Map reveals the states with the highest infant mortality rates
 
07:19
Even if they are born full-term, American babies are as much as 200 percent more likely to die in infancy than babies in many European countries, new research reveals.More than 7,000 full-term babies die in the US each year, but infants are at much higher risks in some states than others, according to a Harvard University study.High rates of mortality in places like Mississippi as compared to New York or California suggest that the nation's high infant mortality rate could be curbed as many of these full-term babies' deaths were likely preventable.Many of the babies died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) or suffocation, both of which suggested to the authors that too many Americans are not using the safest sleeping arrangements for their babies.Between January 2010 and December 2012, more than 10.1 million babies were born full-term in the US.Being born after a full, 39-40 week gestation period is one of the best survival advantages an infant can have.Conversely, with every additional week early a baby is born, its mortality risks falls precipitously.In the US, the mortality rate for babies born between 22 and 23 weeks of gestation is 4.2 per every 1,00 live births.Overall in the US, 5.9 infants per every 1,000 die, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Because premature babies are typically weaker and less resilient than those carried to term, this high infant mortality rate is thought to be driven up by their deaths.But, according to the study authors, mortality rates for premature infants in the US are similar to those in other high-income countries, so their deaths do not explain why the country is ranked 44th out of 199 countries for overall infant mortality rates.'Children born after 36 weeks of gestation…in the US faced more than twice the mortality risk of children in European countries with low infant mortality rates,' the authors wrote.The new research revealed that infant mortality among full-term babies remained high at 2.23 per 1,000 live births, which, the CDC estimates, accounts for more than half of the disparity in infant mortality between the US as Sweden, the authors wrote.Even more staggering was the wide range of state-to-state variation.Mortality rates were highest for full-term babies in Mississippi, where an infant was three times more likely to die than in the state with the lowest rate, Connecticut.Sudden unexplained death of infants (SUDI) was listed as the cause on 43 percent of the full-term babies death certificates.SUDI encapsulates a number of incidents ranging from wholly unexplained sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) to other fatal sleep accidents.In states where a greater number of full-term babies died, SUDI tended to account for the difference in death rates from cities with better odds.New York and California saw fewer than six deaths per 10,000 births, but 12 states, including Ohio, South Dakota and Tennessee, had infant mortality rates more than twice th AutoNews- Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5523951/Map-reveals-states-highest-infant-mortality-rates.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

But what makes maternal healthcare in other affluent countries look so different than the U.S.? Among other things, midwives. Midwives in the U.S. participate in less than 10 percent of births. But in Sweden, Denmark and France, they lead around three quarters of deliveries. In Great Britain, they deliver half of all babies, including all three of Kate Middleton’s. So if the midwifery model works for royal babies, why not our own? Check out the video above to find out how midwives have been at the center of a culture war that’s deeply rooted in race and class in America.

The Importance Of Maternal Health
 
05:01
Welcome to FIVE! Being a teen can be rough sometimes, we all know it. But it’s also pretty rough to be a mother. And yes, not all of us get along with our moms or guardians, but in countries around the world, millions of children don’t have mothers to begin with due to maternal deaths. Today, let’s talk about ways we can prevent that.

Black women's history matters in medicine. Read ProPublica's feature piece on how the US is the most dangerous industrialized country in which to give birth, and racial disparities in maternal mortality make it even worse for women of color: https://www.propublica.org/article/nothing-protects-black-women-from-dying-in-pregnancy-and-childbirth And they're seeking your help in understanding the problem. If you nearly died during pregnancy or know someone who died due to childbirth related causes, check out this page for more information: http://propub.li/2Ae5RMi At 0:54, a previous version of this chart mistakenly said "deaths per 1,000 live births," but it is "100,000" instead.

MDG4 -  Reduce child mortality
 
00:49
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Development_Cooperation_Handbook/Goal_4:_Reduce_child_mortality ---- Each year, millions of children die due to lack of hygiene and exclusion from health services. The number of children dying in the poorest countries of the world is nearly 50 times higher than those dying in developed countries. In a world that has so many resources and means, to allow such massacre to take place is unacceptable. The MDG 4 aims at lowering child mortality rates. This means to expand care services and address all child health determinants. In the world now, majority of the children get vaccinated and indeed the child mortality rates are falling but in sub-Saharan Africa, one in seven children still do not live to see their fifth birthday. There are still countries like Sierra Leone where governments are unable to provide free primary health services and where the presence of international non-government medical organisations is indispensable for saving lives.

CRY - Child Rights and You, SILENCE
 
01:58
CRY - Child Rights and You works to ensure lasting change in the lives of underprivileged children - you can help by making your vote count. Get our leaders to do more for children. Create a vote bank big enough for them to hear that we, the people, demand child rights - the rights to education, safety, healthcare and participation. • Harmonize the age definition for all child-related legislations in line with the National Policy for Children 2013 where a 'child' is any person below the age of eighteen years. • Ensure that the Right to Education is fully exercised as a fundamental right and amend and expand the scope of Right to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009 such that: All Children between 6-14 years get enrolled, regularly attend Elementary School and avail quality education. Also, all children from 0-6 years and 14-18 years should come under the purview of the Act. • Strengthen implementation of the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) such that all six services, that is, Supplementary Nutrition, Health Check-ups, Immunization, Nutrition & Health Education, Pre-school Non-formal Education and Referral Services are effectively functioning. Also ensure that there is an adequate investment carried out in decentralized planning, universal coverage and trained personnel. • Reduce child mortality and morbidity and ensure that no child remains malnourished through carrying out sustained efforts towards complete immunization, regular health check-ups and growth monitoring, proper nutritional support and health counselling of all children under 18 years. • Declare access to quality primary healthcare a Fundamental Right in the Constitution of India and strengthen Primary Health Care systems and child health amongst the urban poor. • Ensure Food Security at household level for all marginalized groups of people with proper implementation of the National Food Security Act, 2013 and consider amendments (i) increasing the protein/ fat intake for pregnant mothers and children to 20-25 grams (according to Supreme Court order) instead of current provision of 18-20 grms (ii) including services such as immunization, health check-ups etc. which have been part of the ICDS as part of the Act (iii) making provision of supplementary nutrition for children in the 14-18 age group. • Amend the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 2012 to abolish all forms of child labour by removing the distinction between hazardous and non-hazardous categories of work for all children up to 18 years of age. • Invest adequately in ensuring protection for children by (i) implementing policies and programmes that protect children from abuse, violence and exploitation (ii) investing in appropriate referral services for the recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration of victims of abuse, violence and exploitation; investing in creating a cadre of trained professional (iii) creating robust monitoring of implementation of child protection mechanisms, schemes and policies (iv) creating a proper database for child trafficking, street children, missing children and ensuring a fully functional newly developed child tracking system -- 'Track Child'. • Ensure Gender Parity, Social Equity, and the rights of Children with disabilities by providing equal opportunities for all social groups -- SC, ST, minority groups and urban deprived groups. Become more responsive to needs of girl children and children with disabilities. • Allocate sufficient Budget for Children (BfC) allocations by increasing the allocation from 4.64% to at least 10% of total Union Budget. Also introduce a child budget component in the budget of all allied Ministries and ensure effective National, State and District-level management and utilization of outlays/ budgets. The best interest of the child needs to be put at the centre of all policy, legislation and practice affecting their young lives. Children, making up a third of India's population, deserve a demonstration of commitment from the nation. It calls for action to express zero tolerance towards violation of children's rights so that every child attains a happy, healthy and creative childhood.

Children can be raised by parents, by fosterers, guardians or partially raised in a day care center.

The term "child" may also refer to someone below another legally defined age limit unconnected to the age of majority. In Singapore, for example, a "child" is legally defined as someone under the age of 14 under the "Children and Young Persons Act" whereas the age of majority is 21.[6][7] In U.S. Immigration Law, a child refers to anyone who is under the age of 21.[8] Biologically, a child is generally anyone between birth and puberty.[1][2] Some English definitions of the word child include the fetus (sometimes termed the unborn).[9] In many cultures, a child is considered an adult after undergoing a rite of passage, which may or may not correspond to the time of puberty.
How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime | Nadine Burke Harris
 
16:03
Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.

Unfortunately, more often than not, those moments are not happy ones. While there have been great triumphs and world changing decisions made by the organizers and participants of these events, there is also tragedy. Through the course of the years of the modern Olympic Games there has been scandal, political issues and death. Overall there have been roughly twenty-five deaths since 1912, eighteen of which were athletes. These shocking historical events have left their imprints on the Games for better or worse.
