Natural disasters are becoming more frequent worldwide and there is growing concern that they may adversely affect short- and long-term health outcomes in developing countries. Prior research has primarily focused on the impact of single, large disaster events but very little is known about how small to moderate disasters, which are
The physical, social and intellectual development of
children from conception to the end of adolescence
requires an environment that is both protected and
protective of their health. A growing number of dis-
eases in children are linked to unsafe environments.
Prenatal and early life exposures, including diet, are
associated with child health and human development
and predispose to late adult effects. Thus, the INMA
project is based on three main rationales.
First, exposure to environmental pollutants through
air, water and food is worldwide.
Community leaders in the Pittsburgh region have long recognized the critical importance of the health and well-being of mothers, infants, and young children and have made intensive efforts to develop effective community-based early childhood interventions and support services. Despite these efforts, in several key
Rapid Paediatrics and Child Health has been written by a group of able
prize-winning clinical medical students from the Royal Free and University
College Medical School. They have developed a system that facilitates
understanding of paediatric conditions, most of them common and all of
those included, important. The authors have achieved an excellent synthesis
that should help in the care of individual children, while maintaining a
population and social perspective. This is a refreshing textbook that will
allow rapid and thorough review of paediatrics and child health....

While reviews of aid effectiveness in Lao People’s Democratic Republic in 2008 and 2009 showed
little progress, one positive, concrete example has been the harmonization of key donors around the
implementation of the maternal and newborn child health package (MNCH).

Several organizations have undertaken efforts to promote oral health. The National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health published The Bright Futures in Practice: Oral Health to promote and improve the health and well being of infants, children and adolescents. The American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Academy of Periodontology
and the American Academy of Pediatrics have issued statements and recommendations for improving the oral health of pregnant women and young children....
The Kenya Working Papers series is an unreviewed, unedited prepublication series of papers
reporting on studies in progress. This paper is based on further analysis of data collected in the
2004 Kenya HIV/AIDS and Maternal and Child Health Service Provision Assessment (KSPA).
The 2004 KSPA was supported by the United States Agency for International Development
(USAID), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the U.K. Department for
International Development (DFID).
We analyze data from the 1993 Indonesian Family Life Survey (IFLS1), distinct in its
collection of a broad array of current and retrospective socio-economic and health information
among individuals, households, and communities2
. The selection of households is
representative of 83% of the Indonesian population, thus capturing the cultural and economic
diversity among Indonesia’s regional populations.
This chapter presents the 2004 MDHS findings on maternal and child health in Malawi.
Topics discussed include the utilisation of maternal and child health services; maternal and
childhood immunisations; common childhood illnesses and their treatment; barriers to obtaining
health care; ability to negotiate sex; and attitudes towards family violence.
Previous studies have found that adverse effects of maternal employment on child obesity are limited to mothers with higher education and earnings. Explanations for this have centered on differences between the childhood nutritional and exercise environments provided by non-parental caregivers versus by the mothers.
B and B+ provide greater assurance that women in need of
treatment receive a fully suppressive triple ARV regimen, to
minimize the risks of infant infection and maximize the benefit
to their own health, and avoid inadvertently receiving a suboptimal
ARV prophylaxis intervention, particularly in settings with
limited access to CD4 testing.
A recent report
5 by Dr. K. Kellie Leitch to the Minister of Health highlighted three major areas of focus to improve child health.
Genomics will play a critical role in addressing two of these areas: obesity and healthy lifestyles, and mental health and
Improving child health through genomics directly aligns with the goals of the National Science and Technology strategy,
focusing our S&T investment in the high priority area of health and related life sciences and technologies, which is identified
as one of four areas of focus for investment.
In Europe, an environmental policy for the
protection of children’s health was established at the
Third Ministerial Conference on Environment and
Health in 1999. At the Fourth Ministerial Conference
on Environment and Health in 2004, the Children's
Environment and Health Action Plan for Europe
was adopted and the member countries committed
themselves to developing and implementing national
environment and health action plans for children by
2007. In response to these developments, Denmark
and Norway began national epidemiological research
projects on child health.
For research on child health and the environment,
the longitudinal cohort study approach is common
worldwide. This is because, as previously mentioned,
cohort studies are recognized as necessary to evaluate
long-term health and the many factors affecting
it throughout the different developmental phases
extending from before birth to adulthood.
Finally, for themost part, the agenda setters—
that is, the politicians — found that child health is a
readily accepted cause that meets with little opposi-
tion when proposed as a subject for social investment
Grades are assigned to bring attention to the current status of each indicator of child health and safety. Grades are assigned
by a group of health experts from the sponsoring organizations. “A” indicates that the current status is “very good”; “B” is
“satisfactory”; “C” is “mediocre”; “D” is “unsatisfactory”; “F” is “very poor.”
Data trends are described as “Better,” “Worse” or “No Change.” Indicators with trends described as “Better” or “Worse”
experienced a change...
