This paper addresses how Asian families in NZ interact with health information and health services in the early childhood period (2 years – 54 months). We’ll look at such things as attitudes to health care, the way health care and information is delivered, and the impact of factors like language, migration history, community support and cultural beliefs. We hope to provide a better understanding of the health needs of our rapidly growing and changing Asian population and comment on whether we can see any early impacts on the children. This paper follows on from the earlier paper covering the perinatal period.
