In 1928, six paediatricians attended the first meeting of the British Paediatric Association "to advance, for the benefit of the public, education in child health and paediatrics...". For decades, the Association discussed how to form a college and, on 23 June 1996 we were granted Royal College status.
Fast forward to 2021, and this summer we celebrate our 25th birthday as RCPCH. We're looking to the past and the future at the many ways the College supports our members and the health and wellbeing of children and young people.
Our subject guides on a range of child health topics are for researchers interested in child health and the history of paediatrics. They cover subjects as diverse as nutrition, HIV/AIDs, vaccination and children's health during the second world war.
