State of Child Health - about

Our landmark report provides a snapshot of infant, children and young people's physical and mental health, bringing together available data across the UK.

On 4 March 2020, we launched our new State of Child Health. The update provides the latest data from our 2017 indicators, alongside evidence for new indicators, including: looked after children, mental health, youth violence, young carers and the child health workforce. Alongside this, we've spoken to 2,000 children and young people to find out what makes them feel "healthy, happy and well".

We've outlined our key asks for each of the UK Governments, which we hope will ensure delivery of key policy decisions to improve child health outcomes.
