15NRHC Recommendation - 03/26/2019 - 14:42

Being in a state of chronic stress in the early years of life often brought on by the conditions of poverty can lead to serious health effects in later life. Fund and develop systems of advocacy for the knowledge of boots of the ground staff (within ACCHOs etc.) to be elevated within the system as a whole, as advocates for families in crisis on a level that actually reflects their realities and context. In doing that develop responses that recognise that the determinants of health often sit outside of the healthcare system and bring all relevant parties to the table.

It would be good to add the word 'context' to this recommendation, to build upon evidence-informed care and the role of context as explained by Prof. Salvador-Carulla. For example ..... actually reflect their realities and context.
