It focuses on all aspects of child health and disease from the perinatal period (in the Fetal and Neonatal edition) through to adolescence. ADC includes original research reports, commentaries, reviews of clinical and policy issues, and evidence reports. Areas covered include: community child health, public health, epidemiology, acute paediatrics, advocacy, and ethics.

The content of ADC is endorsed by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health for Continued Professional Development in line with RCPCH CPD guidelines.
