Some countries regular issue child welfare stamps, often on an annual basis, with an incorporated surcharge to raise funds for a particular charity. The Argentine Republic issued regular child welfare stamps from 1958. Part of the 1970 set is inscribed “pro infancia”. New Zealand's annual health stamp issues started in 1929 and frequently, although not invariably, featured children and raised funds for children's health camps. “Children's Health” has been specifically incorporated in the design in recent years. An example of an early health stamp from 1949 and one of the later issues from 1997 are shown.
