Complex emergencies represent the final pathway of disrupted states leading to conflict and war. Victims of complex emergencies are primarily civilians, with children predominating.

Pediatric providers have assumed roles as consultants, advocates and practitioners of care, but future requirements call for increased capacity and capability to meet pediatric demands.
