Description:
The child health theme of this Public Health Annual Report demonstrates the many factors which determine the present and future health of children - the report shows the current limitations in measuring children's health status and outlines the commitment of the Mid-Western Health Board towards promoting the health of children and future adults. In June 1999 the Mid-Western Health Board became the first health board to approve a strategy for child health. The reasons for taking this step included: Demographic changes in our population due to increasing birth rates and inward migration to the Mid-West. The fact that services for children are provided right across the spectrum of health services including acute, primary, community and voluntary sectors. Recognising the importance of consumer participation in healthcare . Support for the concept of the basic entitlement of a child to grow and develop in health as defined by the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of a Child.
