When it comes to child health, the information available to parents and pediatricians can be overwhelming. Fortunately, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) can help cut through the clutter. Our 60,000 member pediatricians are committed to the physical, mental and social well-being of all infants, children, teens and young adults – and all of the information you’ll find here is supported by scientific research.
One very important step in ensuring the health of any child is to make sure he or she receives immunizations at the correct time. Whether it’s a childhood MMR vaccine or an off-to-college tetanus booster, these simple procedures can save lives – and AAP is here to answer any questions you may have about childhood immunization.
Healthy living is promoted for mothers, and their families through programs for reproductive health, family planning, pregnancy, birth defects, infants, children, teens, and human stem cell research. We seek a future California where one’s full potential is generally assured through a focus towards comprehensive health, physical, psychosocial needs of the maternal, child and adolescent health population. To meet this goal for the citizens of California, the Program has partnerships and agreements with various state, federal, and local agencies in both the public and private sectors. Funding is provided through Title V, XIX (Medicaid), and State General Fund.
