This report is the first of three reports, in the third series on the health of children and young people in the Hutt Valley and Capital and Coast DHB regions. The current report provides an overview of the health status of children and young people in the Hutt Valley and Capital and Coast, 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.
