To save lives of children, diagnose and treat their social vulnerability

The concept of social vulnerability captures the environmental, socio-cultural, and temporal dimensions of childhood vulnerability and describes stages prior to clinical vulnerability and well prior to morbidity.
The first few hours and days of life are critical for the survival of a child and most of the factors that need to be addressed during this period are clinical in nature and are under the control of the attending nurse or physician. However, these factors are responsible for only about half the under-five deaths, because the rest of the deaths take place once children return home from the hospital.(Diwakar Prasad/ Hindustan Times (PHOTO FOR REPRESENTATIONAL PURPOSE))
