Among AFDC infants and toddlers continuously enrolled since birth in SBHI, the percentages of children who had no well-child visits were half as large or less than among HPSM AFDC infants and toddlers, and the percentages who met our definition of full compliance were nearly double in the first 6 months and approximately 50 percent greater in the first 12 and 24 months of life (Table 3).
