4 Summary of Session 2

In Session 2, you have outlined the historical development and patterns of children’s and babies’ health over the last 150 years. We have seen the patterns of geographic and socioeconomic inequalities in the health of young children. You should now be able to describe current issues in young children’s health; and identify some of the ways in which the physical health and mental health of young children are linked. You should also be able to identify some of the risk and protective factors for babies’ and young children’s health.
