Abstract

This is the thesis component of a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) by Published Works at the University of Salford, United Kingdom (UK). The overall submission is a portfolio of seven published works supported by five associated publications and a critical appraisal focusing on the contribution that child-rights based legislation, children’s advocacy and research into child health topics can collectively play in improving the health and wellbeing of children and young people in the UK and globally. The published works are listed and referenced within this thesis but not contained within it. All the published works referenced within this thesis are linked to from the University of Salford Institutional Repository (USIR) system under author, “Rowland, Professor Andrew G”. Legislation and Regulations introduced by the Parliaments, together with common law, sets out what is lawful and unlawful in the UK; children’s rights need to be promoted and protected to give the best possible present and future to young people; and child health can only be improved to the maximum potential with optimal overarching child welfare. It is only when the laws in a society properly protect children and young people, there is advocacy on a micro- and macro- basis by healthcare professionals and members of the community, and when there is a focus on child-health a micro- and macro-level, that the health and wellbeing of children and young people will be optimised. Improving the lives of children and young people in the UK and globally requires a coordinated focus on innovations in three inextricably linked areas: child rights law, children’s advocacy and child health. With a clinical, community and research focus on these three areas, truly child-safe communities can be created in which children and young people can develop and flourish happily, healthily and safe from harm.
