the vulnerable children in the modern society

Vulnerable children in the society include the economically disadvantaged, the ethnic minorities, the uninsured, those from low income families, those living on streets/the homeless, those with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and those with other chronic health conditions, including severe mental illness.

Vulnerable children may also include those who often encounter barriers to accessing healthcare services. Their vulnerability of these individuals is enhanced by race, ethnicity, age, sex, and factors such as income, insurance coverage, and absence of a usual source of care. Their health and healthcare problems intersect with social factors, including housing, poverty, and inadequate education.

The needs of these children are serious, debilitating, and vital, with poor health in dimension likely compounded by poor health in others. Those with multiple problems also face more significant comorbidities and cumulative risks of their illness than those experiencing a single illness.

Millions of vulnerable girls and boys do not acquire the basic literacy, math and life skills they need to lead decent lives and secure jobs. These are the children from the poorest families. They are children whose homes and schools have been destroyed by war, violence or natural disaster. They are children whose access to education is hindered by disability. They are children in remote villages with no transportation to the nearest school. They are the children who have to work to help their families make ends meet. Take Action
