Child Health for All takes a broad approach to child health, looking at the variety of factors affecting a child's well-being in the context of a developing country, more particularly South Africa. Child Health for All includes policies regarding community and child health issues, on children's legislation and government social assistance. Information boxes and pull quotes highlight important criteria and 'take-home' points for students, while end-of-chapter summary point boxes assist studentrevision. The fifth edition features an increased focus on the southern African context and is updated with the latest developments in the field of paediatrics.
