The physicians and editors of KidsHealth sifted through scores
of health issues impacting children and families and chose 10
important trends to watch in 2007.The issues we chose represent a
wide range of concerns: from HIV infections involving millions of
children worldwide to the technology that enables kids and teens to
connect with one another. Some issues, like the growing impact of
obesity, threaten dire consequences for decades to come. Others,
like the newly available HPV immunization, have the potential to
save the lives of many.
Of course, these are not the only important issues affecting
children's health â€• far from it. No doubt, you're closely
watching other issues not on the list. And we invite you to tell us
about them by using the link on this page. The more attention
brought to the health of children, the better for all.
