International Seminar in Sion 2017

We regret to inform you that Sion's 19th International Seminar to be held from the 9th to the 11th of October 2017, organised by the International Institute for the Rights of the Child, in partnership with the Centre for Children's Rights Studies of the University of Geneva and the Terre des Hommes Foundation - Helping Children Worldwide:

Nutrition, Health and Children's Rights

has been postponed.

The partners will keep you informed and we apologize for any inconvenience!

On a world scale, it is estimated that 154.8 million children under the age of 5 were underdevelopped in 2016 and that 52 million had a low weight with regard to their size, essentially due to a bad diet an repeated infections (WHO/UNICEF). On the contrary, 41 million children presented overweight or were obese (WHO).

Meeting children's nutritional needs, particularly young children's, is part of a complex healthcare system that begins with adopting strategies based on children's rights, including taking into account their best interests and their right to be heard. The IDE's 19th International Seminar will attempt to shed light on the many challenges surrounding this issue and will benefit from the expertise of their partner, Terre des Hommes - Aide à l'Enfance.
