    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.
