Working Group on



There is an increasing recognition of the benefits of studying child fatalities to ascertain why children die and whether some of these deaths might be preventable. ISPCAN’s Working Group on Child Death Review assesses the public health response and systems in place regarding the examination of unexpected child death in order to uncover abuse and neglect and establish better prevention measures within a country’s child protection system.

This Working Group frequently meets at ISPCAN Congresses and these sessions are open to anyone with a professional interest in seeking to undertake high-quality reviews of child deaths. The meeting is typically run in a workshop format, using case examples to share approaches to the review of child deaths.
