New papers assess evidence and practice in nurturing care

Published March 19, 2019

The journal Archives of Disease in Childhood has published a series of five papers and an editorial called Informing design and implementation for early child development programmes, funded through the Bernard van Leer Foundation, that provide practical, evidence-based information on implementation of nurturing care in early child development programmes.

The series of papers is structured around a programme cycle and guides policymakers and programmers through situational assessment, measurement of early child development outcomes in routine settings, trends in donor funding, and multi-stakeholder perspectives on scaling and implementation. The series builds on evaluations of innovations by Saving Brains funded by Grand Challenges Canada.
