Abstract

While most children are healthy, it is important to monitor health problems in children to detect emerging patterns of illness and to inform policy and planning of child health services. This section reports on asthma, oral health, disability, emotional and behavioural problems in children, and health status as measured by the Child Health Questionnaire (CHQ).
