Gap in children's health levels in the UK raises concern 英国儿童健康水平差距引起担忧

文字稿

一份大型报告称,英国儿童的健康水平正落后于其它欧洲国家。该文件尤其强调人们应关注儿童肥胖、心理健康及儿童死亡率等问题。这项由英国皇家儿科和儿童健康学院( Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health )发布的详尽报告着重指出,贫困是许多儿童健康问题的根源。请听 Dominic Hughes 的报道。

This report acknowledges there has been progress in the health of children and young people in recent decades. But the authors argue this can’t obscure the fact that the UK is slipping behind other wealthy countries.

It also highlights a stark and growing gap between the health of children from rich families, which matches the best in the world, and the health of those from more deprived backgrounds, which is among the worst.

The report says that childhood mortality rates compare poorly with other European countries while conditions such as diabetes, obesity and mental health are all areas of concern.
