This unique book take a completely fresh approach to child health. The authors address the challenges of child health as embodied in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the positive health targets of WHO's Health for All 2000 initiative. Throughout the book they use these as a theme around which to examine the effects of adverse social, political, environmental, and family influences on child health. Social Paediatrics provides an essential theoretical and philosophical framework for those wishing to face the challenge of enhancing life quality for all children and gives practical guidelines for all involved in child health issues. It is an indispensable source of information for every pediatrician.
