The task of the child welfare clinic is to promote the health of children and their families and preempt the illnesses or preferrably diagnose them at an early stage. The goal is to monitor a child’s physical, mental, and social development and support the emotional attachment between a child and the parents.

At the child welfare clinic, the child’s wellbeing is being monitored at certain intervals at the nurse’s or doctor’s reception. Parents are welcome to the clinic visits. The visit to the clinic should be postponed in the case of a child falling ill. The clinic services are free, and the operations have been organised as neighbourhood services in different parts of the city.
