Chapter of Community Child Health

The Paediatrics & Child Health Division (PCHD) has established the Chapter of Community Child Health (Chapter) to support the professional careers of RACP Fellows and Trainees of the Chapter and to promote and advance the body of knowledge of Community Child Health.

The Chapter is committed to:

  • supporting doctors with expertise or engagement in any or all of the domains of community child health, including child protection, child behaviour & development and child population health; 
  • promoting an ecological framework for understanding and responding to contemporary issues of child health;
  • fostering the development and accreditation of relevant training programs for doctors in community child health;
  • supporting the continuing professional development, research and special professional interests of doctors working in community child health; and
  • advising the PCHD and College on matters pertaining to community child health.


Within the Chapter there are three Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Members of the Chapter may elect to be affiliated with one or more SIGs depending on their area of special interest.

  1. Child Development and Behaviour SIG
  2. Child Population Health SIG
  3. Child Protection SIG


The Chapter of Community Child Health Committee is established by the Paediatrics & Child Health Division as the peak decision making body for the Chapter. The Committee furthers the purposes of the Chapter subject to the Chapter of Community Child Health By-law at the direction of the College Board and/or the Division Council.

The list of Committee members is here as well as related Communique's and end of year reviews.


The Specialist Advisory Committee (SAC) in Community Child Health provides expert advice to the College to inform the Community Child Health curriculum. For more information on Advanced Training in Community Child Health click here.
