Inequities in Child Health Position Statement launched
15 May 2018
National Children’s Commissioner Megan Mitchell launched the College’s position statement on inequities in child health at Congress on Monday, 14 May.
Developed by a Paediatric Working Group co-chaired by Professor Sharon Goldfeld and Associate Professor Susan Woolfenden, the position statement includes a comprehensive range of recommendations that call on the government to:
- report annually against the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s Children’s Headline Indicators to keep governments accountable
- develop equitable access indicators for children accessing health services and report on performance annually
- appoint a National Chief Paediatrician to provide clinical leadership in paediatric healthcare policies and programs.
