DescriptionChildren and adolescents make up nearly 40% of the world's population. Their healthcare needs differ substantially from those of the adult population in many respects. Apart from the obvious differences in body size, it is increasingly recognized that infants, children and adolescents differ physiologically from adults: children are not simply small adults. The greatest growth, development and maturation of the various organ systems is during childhood; consequently, the seeds of healthy adulthood and old age are sown in infancy, childhood and adolescence.
