Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, January 2019

This report provides and update on progress made against the policy recommendations in the RCPCH State of Child Health 2017 report.  The RCPCH congratulates the Government on its commitment to child health, commending them on bold pledges in areas such as obesity, mental health and the integration of children’s health services.  However, the report also shows that England continues to lag behind other Western European countries on a range of child health outcomes including reducing child poverty and inequality, infant mortality, tobacco and alcohol control, and breastfeeding.
