For the majority of children who are born healthy, they should be given every opportunity to stay that way throughout their childhood and into teens, providing great foundations and positive attitudes to becoming and remaining a healthy adult.

For children who are born with health issues, or where health issues present themselves later, children should have the right to easily and affordably access services, products, treatments, for an improved quality of life while living with, treating or recovering from health issues.
