Public health and welfare of our children: Working to ameliorate health determinants associated with diseases.
What is the role of government officials to ensure the safety and increase the health and welfare of our children? Additionally, what is the best practice to reduce the health determinants associated with diseases that continue to affect children? Historically, with some notable exceptions, state and local public health officials and public health departments have worked fervently to increase the safety and ameliorate the health of the children both locally and globally. This is vital at all levels and is fundamental because it is the way to reduce health determinants among children. Having the attention and efforts focusing from every aspect is the first component to curtail this surging problem.Author(s): Talbert PYB
