Child Health Service in Hong Kong

The Child Health Programme for Hong Kong

SSL Leung


Abstract

This is an introduction to the Integrated Child Health and Development Programme (ICHDP), which is a population-based, health promotion and disease prevention programme for children 0 to 5 and their families, delivered through a network of 31 Maternal and Child Health Centres in Hong Kong. It comprises the three components of parenting, immunisation and health and developmental surveillance. The Comprehensive Child Development Service, a 2005 government policy initiative, augments the ICHDP with service components that address the special needs of at risk pregnant mothers, families with psychosocial needs, mothers with postnatal depression and preschool children with developmental problems. The current programme covers about 90% of infants born to local parents.
