Abstract

Health care professionals play a critical role in providing age-appropriate immunizations and assessing newly arrived internationally adopted children for infectious diseases. A systematic approach to screening for infectious diseases combined with assessment of signs and symptoms that could be related to diseases prevalent in the child's country of origin supports children's long-term health and that of their new families.
