In a thought provoking leading article in the January 2014 edition of Archives of Disease in Childhood Prof Ingrid Wolfe from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London provides a view on how Britain compares to other countries with respect to child well-being. She reflects on how inequality and disproportionate disadvantage may explain why we are so far behind our some less wealthy European neighbours and how incorporate a rights based approach to policy may address these issues and ensure greater equality and drive up child well being in the UK.
