  1. Health screening for people with Down's syndrome.

    Article - En anglais

    All adults over the age of 18 years with Down's syndrome living in a borough of London, England, were identified through a case register.

    A questionnaire seeking information on health status and screening was sent to their carers.

    The reply rate was 70%. The attendance for general health care is reasonable, but there are some gaps in screening.

    The implications for primary health care and health promotion are discussed.
