Parent-held child health record (PHCHRs), a public health intervention for promoting access to preventive health services and fostering communication and education around these services, have been in use in many developed and developing countries for decades. There are 2 main types of PHCHRs: the Child Personal Health Record (CPHR) and the Maternal and Child Health Handbook (MCHH). This review examines the value of these records in terms of parents' frequency of use/views of them, as well as their impact on parent health knowledge and health-related outcomes.
