Child Labour: A Public Health Perspective

Eric V. Edmonds

Oxford University Press

Public health is important in the child labour discussion for more reasons than just the consequences of child labour. The morbidity and mortality of caregivers and earners may be central in understanding how children end up in dangerous or exploitive conditions. This chapter outlines how public health issues enter into the economics of child labour. It examines both how public health influences child labour and how child labour influences child health. It begins by reviewing the state of economic research on why children work.
