Abstract

In an historical perspective covering the last 20 years, the influence
of scientific knowledge on international health and nutrition programs
is described, together with the development of children’s
rights. Current statistical data indicate that there has been some but
still insufficient progress on achieving major improvements in the
health and nutrition of children – particularly in poorer countries. Integrated
multi-sectoral programs could increase emphasis on links
between infant and young child and on pre- and post-natal maternal
health, taking into account social and environmental factors. This approach
should reduce paediatric morbidity and mortality and counteract
many long-term health risks, including the development of
overweight. Further development of related legislation is an important
precondition for maternal-child health improvements.
