Child health - reinventing the wheel

In the 60's and 70's we had school nurses, opticians, dentists , free milk, vaccinations and school meals cooked from scratch with good local ingrediants . The result was a generation whose life expectancy is expected to be in our 80's.

There were good reasons why these measures were taken and we have lost sight of this. Now the diseases that were "eradicated" by these measures rickets, measles, food poverty etc are making a come back because of cuts and new thinking.

Look at reinstating these ideas from the past and update them to fit 2020's.

Why the contribution is important

We are losing the benefits of the systems that were so successful in improving child health and the old diseases are making a come back. This needs to be stopped as the costs to the individual and community will be too costly to address at a later date.
