The Child Health Report 2004 is one of an ongoing series of health status reports published by the Region of Peel Health Department to describe the health of the region's population.
The first years of a child's life, from before birth to six years, are critical in the development and future well-being of a child. Healthy babies are more likely to develop into healthy children, and healthy children are more likely to grow up to be healthy adolescents and healthy adults.
This report provides an overview of the health status of Peel's children aged 0 to 6 years, including:
- child population
- family and community
- prenatal health
- infant health
- early childhood health
The Child Health Report 2004 also contains data on many interventions to promote and protect health.
