An attempt is made briefly to describe the present health problems of Swedish children. The report is based on data available in official statistics or collected from special studies. It is concluded that the general state of health of Swedish children is good when assessed by commonly used criteria. The mortality pattern is dominated by perinatal and accidental deaths, but also neoplasms are of importance. There are indications that genetic and handicapping disorders, and psychosocial maladjustment will receive more attention in the future.
