Welcome from the AAP President
Welcome to the official Web site of the American Academy of Pediatrics-an organization of 60,000 pediatricians committed to the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. Whether you're looking for general information related to child health or for more specific guidelines concerning a pediatric issue, you've come to the right place. Here, you'll find information regarding the Academy's many programs and activities…our policy statements and practice guidelines…our publications and other child health resources…and much, much more. Best of all, you can rest assured that the information comes from the nation's leading child health experts and that we have scientific research supporting our recommendations.
The AAP Web site contains general information for parents of children from birth through age 21. Bookmark our site and access the latest accurate child health information. Topics covered range from selection of car seats, injury prevention, breastfeeding, and immunizations to obesity and injury prevention.
Millions of children in our country do not get needed health care. The AAP invites you to join with us in advancing an Agenda for Children, which will not only provide all children with universal, affordable, quality health care, but will advance the educational and social needs of every child. We need to work together to make certain that children become a national priority and that their needs are met at a state and national level.
