About

ProChild, Protecting Children NPO

  • ProChild

    is an Italian nonprofit association funded in 2009 by a group of professionals working in research and prevention of children injuries and malnutrition.

  • Aim

    The principal aim of the association is to investigate major harms to children to ensure proper and evidence based prevention strategies, targeting its works on nutrition and injuries. In both themes, primary prevention is seen as gold standard in order to avoid the onset and the potential development of pathologies that are nowadays increasing in prevalence and mortality.

  • The Association

    he Association works closely with the Department of Medicine and Public Health, University of Padua and the Pediatric Hospital Garrahan in Buenos Aires for the development of projects on nutrition and related to the topic of injuries and the risk analysis.

  • Susy Safe and the studies

    Currently ProChild, with the University of Padova, is supporting the maintenance and development of the Susy Safe Project (Surveillance System), an international database that collects more than 25000 cases of foreign body injury in the Upper‑Aereo-Digestive Tract. The Association also conducted scientific studies on children's eating habits worldwide, with a focus on Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and India.
