Support the Budapest Declaration - Refugees and Children's Right to Health Care
These days hundreds of thousands of refugees from war zones, especially Syria, arrive in Europe. This leads to critical situations particularly for those needing special attention such as children and families. More than two thousand paediatricians, neonatologists, nurses and parents from Europe and the entire world came together in Budapest for the first congress of joint European Neonatal Societies (jENS) to discuss all aspects of newborn health. It is our duty to help where we can. Therefore, parts of the jENS Congress’ revenues will be donated to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). In addition, participants donated money during the congress week.
You can make the difference by signing the “Budapest Declaration - Refugees and Children’s Right to Health Care”: Here
To sign the declaration, please insert your name and e-mail address on this website. The “Budapest Declaration” will be handed over to the governments of European countries.
The vision of EFCNI is to improve the situation of pregnant women and newborn infants in Europe across the full spectrum of care, promoting and protecting the right to the best start in life. EFCNI as well as the organising and supporting societies of jENS (ESN, ESPR, UENPS, COINN, MPT, Hungarian Society of Perinatology and Obstetric Anesthesiology) strongly endorse and support adequate help and special protection of children and pregnant women arriving as refugees in Europe.
Please join us by signing the “Budapest Declaration - Refugees and Children’s Right to Health Care”! Feel free to forward the declaration to others who may be interested in supporting our mission.
