Under section 7.1 (a) of the Ombudsman for Children Act 2002, the Ombudsman for Children has a statutory responsibility to advise the Minister for Health and Children or any other Minister of the Government, as may be appropriate, on the development and co-ordination of policy relating to children. In April 2007, the Ombudsman for Children contacted the Minister for Health and Children and, pursuant to section 7.1 (a) of the 2002 Act, recommended that consideration be given to the establishment of a mechanism to review systematically child deaths in the State. The purpose of such a review mechanism would be to develop a deeper understanding of why children die in an effort to reduce the number of preventable deaths.
