One such organisation, Action for Children and Youth Aotearoa
(ACYA), has written numerous reports on New Zealand's compliance with other human rights treaties and on proposed legislation and policies that affect children.
ACYA similarly noted concern (Action for Children and Youth Aotearoa, 2003b).
ACYA's main concern seemed to be that 'poverty, leads to children having to work'(Action for Children and Youth Aotearoa, 2003a: 232).
Other topics include how to choose paediatric postgraduate education; whether undergraduate programmes include enough paediatric education; a discussion about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, with a request for section members to make submissions on child health policy through the non-government group Action for Children and Youth Aotearoa
. There are aLso requests for clinical information on effective management of muscle spasms for children in traction; chronic pain management for adolescents with severe juvenile idiopathic arthritis; and whether anyone is using paediatric early warning scores.
