Child welfare clinics serve all families with children in all matters related to child health. The aim of a child welfare clinic is to guarantee that the child grows and develops well and stays healthy.  A child welfare clinic helps families to understand that healthy ways of life are important for a child from the early years on. A child welfare clinic also guides families into making right decisions for attaining healthy ways of life.

The customership of a child welfare clinic starts when the child becomes two weeks old. The customership continues until the child starts school.
