General & Clinical Pediatrics

Pediatrics is one of the interdisciplinary fields of medicine which is mostly concerned with the medical, health care and development of newborn babies and children and their potential to get complete growth into adulthood. Pediatrics usually follows the age range from infants to adolescents. The main objective of the pediatric care is to reduce the child and infant death rates, to control the transmission of infectious diseases and to promote healthy lifestyles. Pediatrics is not only concerned about the immediate cure but also the long term effects on quality life, abilities and survival. Clinical pediatrics focuses on the aetiology, diagnosis, and treatment of child illnesses.
