PAN: Children Policy Brief : Poor childhood health can condemn children to poverty for life PAN: Children Policy Brief : Poor childhood health can condemn children to poverty for life HOT

This is the second in a series of five policy briefs published by PAN: Children drawn from a study commissioned and funded by the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) South Africa. The combined effect of various sources of poor health in childhood – such as weak health services, poor water and sanitation provision, malnutrition, and HIV/AIDS – is to create a potential poverty trap from which children may find it difficult to escape. The effect of such poor childhood health can thus be long-lasting, and early intervention is thus desirable.
