Abstract: 

The role of the Provincial Health Officer was redefined by legislation in 1994 to report independently to the Minister of Health and directly to the public on health issues. This includes the production of an Annual Report on the health of British Columbians, which in 1997 consisted of a Feature Report on Child Health, entitled “The Health and Well-being of British Columbia’s Children”.

While primarily concerned with the general interests of all children in the province, this report also addressed the societal interest in the health status of a particularly vulnerable group of children -- Children and Youth in Care (CYIC).
