Abstract

This report is the first of three reports, in the third series on the health of children and young people in MidCentral and Whanganui. While the aim of the first two reporting cycles was to present an overview of the major issues affecting the health of children and young people in MidCentral and Whanganui individually, this third series, while building on the frameworks developed in the previous two, aims to take a more regional approach to child and youth health needs assessment. The current report provides an overview of the health status of children and young people in MidCentral and Whanganui, and aims to assist those working to improve child and youth health regionally, to utilise all of the available evidence when developing programmes and interventions to address child and youth health need. The role that primary care plays in preventing a range of avoidable hospital admissions and mortality is crucial, with this year’s in depth topics focusing on the role of primary care in achieving health gains for children and young people. Specifically, the issues considered in this year’s in-depth topics are: models of primary care for children and models of primary care for young people.
