It provides an overview and practical guidelines to address international child health issues, including acute respiratory illness, diarrhoeal diseases, perinatal conditions, nutritional deficiencies, and communicable diseases. These issues will be presented from the perspective of public health practice in a range of countries. The subject will highlight the lifecycle approach and association with other stages of development, particularly the health of the mother and the role of family and community based practices.
