www.unicef-irc.org/publications/708

La lucha contra las desigualdades infantiles es un tema que importa, tanto desde una perspectiva moral como social y económicamente. La reducción de la inequidad en la infancia requiere abordar cuestiones estructurales sociales. Este documento proporciona evidencia sobre cómo las condiciones sociales, económicas y ambientales conforman como resultados desigualdades en materia de infancia. Sobre la base de conocimientos generados a través de los estudios sobre los determinantes sociales de la salud, el trabajo proporciona un marco para informar a los decisores políticos y a los investigadores con el objetivo de reducir las desigualdades en la infancia, con un enfoque específico en países de rentas bajas y medianas.

Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study: international report from 2013/2014 survey

Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study: international report from 2013/2014 survey Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC), a WHO collaborative cross-national study, has provided information about the health, well-being, social environment and health behaviour of 11-, 13- and 15-year-old boys and girls for over 30 years. This latest international report from the study presents findings from the 2013/2014 survey, which collected data from almost 220 000 young people in 42 countries in Europe and North America. The data focus on social context (relations with family, peers and school), health outcomes (subjective health, injuries, obesity and mental health), health behaviours (patterns of eating, toothbrushing and physical activity) and risk behaviours (use of tobacco, alcohol and cannabis, sexual behaviour, fighting and bullying) relevant to young people’s health and well-being. New items on family and peer support, migration, cyberbullying and serious injuries are also reflected in the report.

Growing up in the unhappy shadow of the economic crisis. Mental health and well-being of the European child and adolescent population

Growing up in the unhappy shadow of the economic crisis. Mental health and well-being of the European child and adolescent population This report from the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) highlights existing evidence on the detrimental effect of the ongoing economic crisis and austerity-driven measures on the mental health and well-being outcomes of the European child and adolescent population.The report shows how political choices, made within a framework of fiscal consolidation on many socio-economic determinants of people’s health, have had negative impacts on citizens’ mental health and well-being. The determinants include, for instance, employment status, household income and ability to provide adequate living conditions fundamental to optimal and sustainable human development.Children, as a particularly vulnerable group, are disproportionately affected by declining living standards. The restrictive atmosphere of the crisis, where political and financial choices of many national governments is to cut, rather than invest in early years, means that living standards and social and labour environments for families have been adversely affected.
