Social paediatrics

  • Fred J. W. Miller
Chapter

Abstract

Social paediatrics has been defined in many ways, most of them incomplete and unsatisfactory. To me, it has always implied an attitude towards the care of children which seeks to understand the health of an individual child, or a population of children, in relation to his or their complete environment. This begins with the individual’s genetic inheritance, and it includes his antenatal and later his family environment. Through his family, he is influenced by cultural, educational and economic forces. Only by contemplation of all these factors can we understand and influence health and development.
