Published November 7, 2019

With the Foundation’s support, India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare rolled out a video on the importance of the first 1000 days of a child’s life for healthy brain development. The video also informs parents about the Ministry’s initiatives to provide support in children’s early years, including a parenting app and call centre.

The video is part of a larger focus by the ministry, and in particular the RBSK (National Child Health Programme), to raise the awareness of a wide variety of stakeholders across the country about the importance of the first 1000 days.
