Community Health

Country of origin: UK

The Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, published Volume 2 of her 2012 Annual Report recently. The report calls on government, the whole health service, social care and education professionals to take action and make improvements now. It highlights a strong economic case for doing more, sooner. In addition to improvements on physical health, the report highlights the need for society to support children to build emotional resilience, supporting children through better communication to learn from their mistakes and deal with life’s inevitable ‘ups and downs’.

The report is available online.
