As in almost all emergencies, the population under five years is the most vulnerable. In this tragedy, where children may be the only survivors - perhaps not fortunate enough to have another family member alive - providing effective treatment as well as monitoring the children is essential.
This emergency action followed the December 26 2004 earthquake and tsunami.
