Research Issues in the Health and Nutrition in Early Childhood.
North, A. Frederick, Jr.
Ill health and its causes, such as poor nutrition, can keep a child from fully exploiting his environment. Important issues to be considered are as follows: (1) functionally important health problems frequently found in children, (2) techniques which identify the children who have problems, (3) treatment most effective to remedy the problems, and (4) resources (financial, manpower, administrative, organizational), to identify, remedy, and prevent the problems. Gaps in basic data governing these issues indicate the need for decisions concerning the content and organization of health programs. Diverse systems should be self-critical with built-in evaluation and monitoring to insure definite knowledge about the effectiveness of their treatment technique and organizational plans. (DO)
