The road ahead for better child health

This brochure offers suggestions for the improvement of child health services based on the findings of a nation-wide 1948 study of child health services by the American Academy of Pediatrics with the cooperation of the Children's Bureau. That study is titled Child Health Services and Pediatric Education and is published separately. This publication discusses the need for better training for all doctors who provide child care, better distribution of services for child care, the method of fulfilling the needs, the obstacles to this, the first steps in accomplishing that, and the end result.
