The Early Childhood Matters 2019 launched today and showcases advances in early childhood development.
This document will be useful and of interest to anyone working to improve the health and wellbeing of babies, toddlers and their caregivers.
The 2019 edition features 32 articles – six more than last year – written by global icons including Maria Fernanda Espinosa (president of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly), Daniel Kablan Duncan (vice-president of the Republic of Cõte d’ivoire), Hugo de Jonge (deputy prime minister of Health, welfare and Sport of the Netherlands), etc.
Early Childhood Matters is published annually by the Bernard van Leer Foundation and aims to elevate key issues, spread awareness of promising solutions to support holistic child development and explore the elements needed to take those solutions to scale.
