Save the Children integrates its health theme into its broader programs of Education, Child Protection and Child Rights Governance, e.g. strengthening the medical sector’s role in addressing child rights’ violations. Furthermore, children’s survival, health and wellbeing are priorities in any Save the Children humanitarian response in an emergency, including assisting medical staff to provide outreach services to remote herder households during harsh winter conditions, and training for Psychological First Aid in schools.
