New Child Poverty Action Group report on child poverty and health

CPAG has issued the first in its Our Children, Our Choice series of policy recommendation papers.

The report is well referenced and makes a compelling case including nine recommendations to significantly improve the health outcomes of children in poverty.

A key aspect of the report is that we are making a choice about the services available to children and it is these choices that lead to child poverty. This may seem obvious to some but it’s a useful reminder that we can choose to do more.

The media release for the report is a useful summary.

The full report is a 32 page PDF.
