|Title: ||Health and well-being of children in the Mid-West: report of the Director of Public Health 2001|
|Publisher: ||Mid-Western Health Board (MWHB)|
|Issue Date: ||2001 |
|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.|
