Peru: A multi-pronged approach to making health services more nurturing
Starting in 2018, the United Nations' Children's Fund (UNICEF) and local partners took advantage of the growing interest in strengthening support for investment in ECD as part of Peru's public policy agenda. UNICEF adopted a muilti-pronged approach involving the creation of an enabling environment and champions at national level coupled with capacity building of diverse frontline workers to make existing services more nurturing at local levels. This case study describes how the Care for Child Development approach was used at national and local levels, specifically how it was adapted for use in Peru's Growth and Development Check-ups Programme (CRED in Spanish).
