The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) has published a report on a new approach to public health and prevention in the UK.
- poor health often has underlying and preventable social causes, including adverse experiences in childhood, and
- health visitors and parental support programmes have proven effective in preventing ill health.
- the government should mandate six health visits for every new-born child;
- every child who lives in a household in receipt of universal credit should receive a free school meal.
