Regional workshop to improve inpatient hospital care of children in South-East Asia
AbstractAbout 10%-15 % per cent of children who seek medical care at primary level facilities need referral care at higher facilities. Anecdotal evidence and experience suggests that sick children are either not taken to nearby hospitals or taken to tertiary care facilities straightaway. One of the reasons for this is the lack of or poor quality of child care in small peripheral hospitals. Participants of the Regional Workshop to Improve Inpatient Hospital Care of Children in South-East Asia , held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, from 21 to 24 June 2008, examined various aspects related to the care of children in hospitals and reached an agreement on a framework of action to improve the quality of hospital care for children.
