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.
