Child Health

A good start in life is essential for children to thrive and achieve their full potential; it provides the foundation for a healthy productive adulthood.

Children can be particularly vulnerable during their early years; however this period is one of great opportunity, in which parents/ carers/ healthcare providers can nurture and facilitate healthy growth and learning.

Child health includes physical, mental and social well-being. Crucial factors influencing this include healthy diets, physical activity, sleep, resilience, social relationships and safety.
