This chapter summarises the major themes and key messages presented in the book and explores the new and emerging opportunities described by contributing authors. It pulls together the critical issues that are likely to continue to beset the development and implementation of public health approaches and system reform processes. The major learnings thus far are highlighted and some of the possible directions in program and service development are explored for their application across various jurisdictions. The key features and principles for designing and implementing public health approaches are outlined and the issues stemming from these examined with respect to addressing the imperatives of involving all stakeholders, including end users and especially children, in the development of new initiatives and reforms.
