Child Health beyond the Age of Five - Neglected and Forgotten?
Middle childhood is often referred to as the ‘forgotten years’ of development because the majority of research has focused on development in early childhood or on adolescent growth. It is evident that there is a lack of data and information about this age group, the 5-10 year olds, and in many ways even up to the age of 15. This MMS Bulletin addresses the main topics of middle childhood: from the consequences of child marriage and the overburdening of parents bringing up their children, to better hygiene during menstruation. The Bulletin reveals the knowledge gaps, missed chances and challenges in reaching this age group in order to provide them with more effective prevention, healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation.
