This revised edition of Helen Roberts’ classic study of child health inequalities features new case studies, updated research references, and a new section on cost effectiveness—an important tool in an era of government spending cutbacks. Applying tools from a variety of disciplines and drawing on evidence from the UK and beyond, Roberts tests the effectiveness of public policy, community, and individual efforts to reduce health inequalities among children at different life stages—including infancy, early years, middle childhood, and adolescence—and to address the particular needs of disabled children.

About the Author:

Helen Roberts is a medical sociologist in the General Adolescent and Paediatrics Unit at University College London’s Institute of Child Health.

Review:

"This book is a compelling comprehensive read, providing context and solutions to child health inequalities based on evidence and rights, engendering hope for long term systemic changes and child health improvements." Elizabeth Waters, The Jack Brockhoff Child Health and Wellbeing Program and The McCaughey Centre, University of Melbourne, Australia "Highly accessible. This book should be required reading for public health students and it would be a good addition to many social policy reading lists." Critical Public Health journal "A timely text that pulls together the core issues relevant to those wishing to reduce inequalities in child health" Helen Farasat, Bournemouth University "This wonderful book tells us we know a lot about inequalities in children's health but less about what to do. It presents information and ideas to help make these decisions." Terence Stephenson, President, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health "This superbly crafted book is essential reading for all those wishing to right some serious wrongs in our society. Roberts puts the evidence and the power in our hands. " Penny Hawe, Population Health Intervention Research Centre, University of Calgary, Canada

Book Description Policy Press, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The UK has a deservedly strong reputation for work on understanding social inequalities in health, but there is some way to go in using research and other types of knowledge to reduce inequalities in child health. This revised and updated edition of an important report looks at macro public policy interventions, community interventions, and individual level interventions in a variety of settings, including infancy, early years, childhood, adolescence, and particular needs including looked after children. It considers what works - or might work - in practice. There are new case studies, updated research references, and new reference to cost effectiveness - all relevant for doing the right thing in a climate of austerity. Drawing on evidence from the UK and beyond, the book presents these in an accessible form, not just for those who make decisions now, but also for the students of today who are the decision makers of tomorrow. The book is supported by a companion website, containing additional materials for both students and lecturers, which is available from the link above. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781847429964
