An editorial on CHIFA has been published in the BMJ Paediatrics Open
Why Health Information Needs to be Accessible to All
The editorial is by Neil Pakenham Walsh and Tony Waterston and covers the aims, origins and future of CHIFA.
The editorial opens as follows:
‘Health information can be described as the information that citizens, health workers and others need to protect their own health and the health of others. In this context, it is information that is needed for all aspects of child health: for the prevention of disease and the maintenance of health; for screening, diagnosis and appropriate management of disease; and for rehabilitative and palliative care.’
