Abstract

Armed conflict has a major impact on child health

throughout the world. One in six children worldwide lives

in an area of armed conflict and civilians are more likely

to die than soldiers as a result of the conflict. In stark

contrast to the effect on children, the international arms

trade results in huge profits for the large corporations

involved in producing arms, weapons and munitions.

Armed conflict is not inevitable but is an important

health issue that should be prevented.
