Demands for prevention in the areas of child protection, child development and early education are increasingly being discussed in the health care system, social services and the educational and school system. Concepts in health care include health promotion, risk assessment and primary and secondary prevention. Child protection promotes strategies such as early social support services and at-risk screening and educational systems advocate early intervention and concepts to enhance child development. The complexity of children's developmental needs and their living environments require a comprehensive approach of all three systems and integration of services and interventions. Each child's needs must be individually analysed and services tailored appropriately. A case vignette demonstrates and analyses typical problems of interacting systems. A systemic view of systems of care allows planning of efficient and sustainable social and health care policies.
