Children are the world’s most important resource. Pediatrics is the sole discipline concerned with all aspects of the well-being of infants, children, and adolescents, including their health; their physical, mental, and psychologic growth and development; and their opportunity to achieve full potential as adults.

Pediatricians must be concerned not only with particular organ systems and biologic processes, but also with environmental and social influences, which have a major impact on the physical, emotional, and mental health and social well-being of children and their families.

Pediatricians must be advocates for the individual child and for all children, irrespective of culture, religion, gender, race, or ethnicity or of local, state, or national boundaries. Children cannot advocate for themselves. The more politically, economically, or socially disenfranchised a population or a nation is, the greater the need for advocacy for children by the profession whose entire purpose is to advance the well-being of children.

The young are often among the most vulnerable or disadvantaged in society and, thus, their needs require special attention. As divides between nations blur through advanced transportation and communication, through globalization of the economy, and through modern means of warfare and as the categorization of countries into “developed” or “industrialized” and “developing” or “low income” break down due to uneven advances within and across countries, a global perspective for the field of pediatrics becomes both a reality and a necessity.
