This fourth volume of the 1981 Report of the Select Panel for the Promotion of Child Health presents a collection of commissioned papers prepared in order to provide working groups of the panel with background information on major areas of health care and health policy toward children and pregnant women. The papers are grouped according to the following topics: health protection and promotion; health services needed by children, adolescents, and pregnant women; access of children and pregnant women to health care; financing and organization of health services; health manpower; planning and administration of health services; and research and information that is still needed in relation to maternal and child health. Also included is a summary of the proceedings of the Panel's workshop on organization of health services, held February 21 to 22, 1980. The Workshop focused on a description of six organizational mechanisms for providing needed health services to infants, children, and pregnant women, sources of support for improved existing organizational mechanisms, and ways of ensuring effective use of federal child health funds.
