The Deputy Provincial Health Officer says a new report on the health and well-being of children in BC is a starting point for the health care community to make improvements.

The “Is ‘Good’ Good Enough?” Report was released last week by the provincial health officer and Child Health BC. Bonnie Henry says the report compiles data for 51 indicators of children’s health.

Henry notes that British Columbia is the first province in the country to create this kind of report to track indicators on children’s health.
