Abstract

Children are often touted as being very important members of society because they represent our future. Optimizing their health outcomes has the potential for a huge impact on public health because children are at an early stage in the life trajectory. But it is often unclear how society allocates its resources or creates policies to ensure that it invests in children's health. The under-investment in pediatric clinical trials is a good example of how our resource allocation may be insufficient.
