Abstract

There is an increasing awareness among practising clinicians that public health for children and young people has an enormous impact on child health outcomes, and is an intrinsic aspect of the practice of paediatrics. This article, the first in a series, explores the key concepts of child public health, explains why public health matters to clinicians through a series of examples, and outlines opportunities and resources for further learning.
