NC Child Health Report Card 1999

1999 Child Health Report Card

Published January 1, 1999


The purpose of this annual publication is to heighten awareness of the health of our children by summarizing data on important child health indicators. The NCIOM, in collaboration with NC Child (formerly Action for Children North Carolina), produces the report card to assist health administrators, legislators, and child and family advocates in their efforts to improve the health and safety of children statewide. This report card highlights an increase in Medicaid-enrolled children receiving preventive care, as well as improvements in environmental and dental health.
