Development Outcomes in the Environment of low Income Children

Chrysoula Melissa-Halikiopoulou

Abstract

Low income children are dispoprortionaly exposed to more adverse social and physical environmental conditions, they have fewer and less socially supportive networks than their affluent counterparts and they reside in more polluted and unhealthy environments. The accumulation of multiple environmental risks is increasingly recognised as a determinant of health, behavior and disease. If the harmful effects of the stress of residing in poor neighborhoods are not redused and buffered, low income children's mental and physical health will suffer.

Keywords: low-income neighborhoods, childhood poverty, effects on child health
