About the BookThis thoroughly revised, updated and expanded edition includes all the new developments and efforts made by World Health Organisation and Government of India for improving child health. The book is unique in concept and approach, focusing throughout on the day-to-day care and common conditions influencing child health. Beginning with growth and development, morbidity and mortality, common diseases, nutritional requirements and disorders, accidents, poisoning, psychological derangements, the book makes a detailed study of gynaecological problems in children and also the disease of cancer in them. A concise study of health problems of adolescents is an added attraction of the book.
