This chapter addresses the connections between child health in the developed and developing world. It offers an international perspective on children in society and their health, explores the complex links between different parts of the globe, and argues that there is significant interdependence between them. It discusses the key health problems of children who live in developing countries, where poverty and lack of resources are key mediators, as well as those whose lives have been disrupted by war and infrastructure breakdown. It examines some of the solutions that have been developed through research or innovations in practice — some of which could benefit child public health practice in the developed world too.
