Inequity in child health: addressing the inverse care law – be part of the solution not the problem

In Australia and New Zealand, child health inequities mean children have differential health, development and wellbeing outcomes. This disparity is unjust, unnecessary, systematic and, most importantly, preventable. This session will consider opportunities for governments and health services to reduce these disparities, and the powerful role paediatricians can play. Launch – Inequities in Child Health position statement.
