New publication: European child health services and systems

The recently published "European child health services and systems. Lessons without borders" takes a purposefully child-centric view, and aims to improve understanding of children's health services across Europe. Focusing on 10 western European countries, the book combines primary and secondary research on children's health services and wider child health systems.

It addresses such topics as:

  • primary care for children
  • services for long-term conditions and noncommunicable diseases
  • child public health
  • mental health and behavioural disorders
  • services for vulnerable and maltreated children.

It concludes with a strategy for improving the capacity of European health systems to drive improvements in health and equity.
