Showcasing Human Development, Child and Youth Health Research

Did you know: 16.7% of Canadians were aged 14 and under in 2011?1

Since 2000, the CIHR Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH) supports the work of researchers which aims to give the best start in life for all Canadians. Children's health, security and wellness go a long way in making a better future for our communities.
