This article deals with the establishment of a new regional figure, responsible for guaranteeing infants and adolescents' welfare, focusing on how this authority was developed and the currant state of the art.

The creation of commonly shared guidelines is catalyzed by the actions of the national conference for childhood and adolescence welfare, which focuses on local cooperation.
