The December issue of Health Affairs focuses on children’s health and includes articles that examine “current threats to the health and health care of America’s children”. The issue includes a number of sections which address children’s health through the lens of the U.S.’s evolving health care system: changing epidemiology of children’s health, insurance coverage, access to care, maternal health and birth outcomes, medically complex children, childhood obesity, resource allocation, and housing and health.
The issue includes several articles authored by GW faculty including:
- The Search For A National Child Health Coverage Policy
