Protecting Children in Conflict
Today, nearly 1 in 5 children around the world are living in conflict zones.
Conflicts are lasting longer and are more likely to be urban and fought among civilian populations.
Sometimes, children are deliberately targeted.
Hundreds of thousands of children are dying every year from indirect effects of conflict, such as disease and the breakdown of services.
Protecting children must be a top priority.
What We’re Doing
SCAN is calling on our leaders to uphold international standards, hold perpetrators of violence to account and take action to protect children and support their recovery.
It is time to take decisive action.
