Our abstract for the CHAMPIONS scoping review was recently published in The Lancet; see below for the full text. It summarises the systematic review that we conducted of interventions in low- and middle-income countries for ways to improve healthcare access and utilisation for marginalised children under 5 and how these interventions could be applied to the UK.
