Participation and Children’s Rights

Title of Paper:

Participation and Children’s Rights: A Case Study on the Role of Non-Governmental Organizations Working For Internally Displaced Children in Khartoum-Sudan in Health Services


Background:

This paper was published at the international Journal of Social Science Studies


Purpose:

This paper focuses on the work of a national organization working in health services for displaced children in Wad-Elbashir camp in Khartoum-Sudan and argues the case for a rights-based approach to participation in health services, including separate provision of services for adolescent mothers, along with education on sexual and reproductive health for children.


Key Message:

Children’s rights to survival and development are not fulfilled and actively undermined by NGOs. This, in turn, affects maternal and child health as the organisation neglects many factors that can contribute to children’s health and survival.
