This entry aims to compile lists of children's health information websites and digital resources worldwide. As a work in progress it should not be viewed as a definitive list. According to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), a child is defined as any person below the age of 18 years. The word itself child refers to various stages of growth and development that human beings go through before reaching adulthood (maturity). Stages are divided into two groups; those before birth and those after birth. For specific adult entries and health issues, see Men's Health Pathfinders and Women's Health Pathfinders.
