    Child and adolescent health and development progress report 2002-2003.

    World Health Organization [WHO]

    Geneva, Switzerland, WHO, 2004. [139] p.

    The WHO Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development (CAH) promotes the survival, health, growth and development of children and adolescents from birth up to 19 years. The structure of the Department, and its guiding principles, are intended to support progress towards this goal. CAH is organized into four teams, three of which address research and development across the life-course – neonatal and infant health and development, child health and development, and adolescent health and development. The fourth team provides technical support to partners, regions and countries. This structure allows the Department to apply a public health approach to health and development, within a lifecourse framework. CAH activities follow a well-defined cycle: research; development of strategies, tools, standards and guidelines; and support for their introduction, monitoring and evaluation in countries. The approach ensures that countries are assisted in their efforts to implement interventions and strategies proven by research, and that experience of implementation stimulates and defines research and development priorities. This report highlights activities undertaken and progress made by CAH during the 2002–2003 biennium. It is organized according to the structure of the Department, with one chapter for each research and development team. Relevant technical support is described at the end of each chapter. Documents and articles published during the biennium are listed in the annexes. (excerpt)
