Social conditions are a key component of health. Because we believe that taking a clear view on some aspects is important, we want to support decisions makers to choose wisely on behalf of children. And we aim to improve awareness of the impact, the causes and the consequences of social conditions on health. Therefore, ISSOP regularly prepares position statements on important topics relating to child health. You can access them on www.issop.org. Peer-reviewed journals will also publish some of our position statements.
