Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that deals with the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. Pediatricians focus on the physical, emotional, and social health of children from birth to young adulthood. This specialty encompasses a broad spectrum of health services ranging from preventive health care to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases.

Pediatricians manage the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of their patients, in every stage of development, in both sickness and health. The aim of pediatrics is to reduce infant and child mortality, control the spread of infectious disease, foster healthy lifestyles, and ease the difficulties of children and adolescents with chronic conditions.

Pediatricians diagnose and treat several conditions among children including injuries, infections, genetic and congenital conditions, cancers, organ diseases and dysfunctions. They also focus on early detection and prevention of various health issues that affect children, through regular well-checks and immunizations.
