Annotation:
In 1990, President George H.Bush led the United States delegation to the World Summit for Children (WSC), reflecting commitment to national and global agendas for the health and well-being of women, children, and their families. The authors state that the health of mothers and fathers, infants, and children is of critical importance to the United States, both as a reflection of the current health status of the population and as a predictor of the health of the next generation. The report points out that the United States shares many global challenges within the context of the 1990 WSC goals, specifically health conditions and risk factors that disproportionately affect certain population groups. The United States has many strategies and initiatives that address the health and well-being of women, infants, children, and adolescents. The Department of Health and Human Services, through its Healthy People objectives, outlines a national health agenda and establishes a scorecard for monitoring health status in the United States. Other agencies have critical roles in addressing women's and children's issues, including the United States Departments of Agriculture, Education, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Labor, and State the Agency for International Development and Environmental Protection Agency.
