Last couple decades have witnessed widespread interest in children health promotion. And this trend is mainly simulated by several factors both in micro and macro level, which include but not limit in the rapidly rising clinical rate of children accidental injuries, the awareness change in children protection, the development of ways of health promotion knowledge dissemination. However, as various literature and report indicate, children's viewpoints and rights are always marginalized during health promotion projects. That means children, because of various vulnerable factors, are took for granted to be recipients of health promotion on their behalf, rather as partners in health promotion whose views and concerns about health are accepted as valid in their own right. Fortunately, begin in 1990s, there is a thinking shift and critical discussion of the place and role of children in health promotion. And there come up with various recommendations both in research, policy and practice, framed in child-friendly perspective. Nevertheless, the existent health promotion is so scattered and limit in biological level, which limit still exclude children out of making health decision and enjoying full rights in health promotion. This round-table session will begin a dialogue about the overlap and intersection of differing forms of children health promotion projects, including Chinese aboriginal case set by children's hospital of Fudan university in children health promotion (the dollhouse). Our goal is to stimulate conversation that will promote understanding of the shared contributions and challenges of research on these topics, ways to further integration across topics, and emerging areas of scholarship and practice.
