This paper proposes a comprehensive, multisectoral, multilevel lifecourse conceptualisation of human capital development by building on the Nurturing Care Framework.
Understanding donor, government and out-of-pocket funding for early child development (ECD) is important for tracking progress. This paper, published in the British Medical Journal’s Archives of Disease in Childhood, aims to estimate a baseline for the Nurturing Care Framework, with a special focus on childhood disability.
Using analysis structured according to the Nurturing Care Framework, this paper from BMJ shows that more efforts are needed to reduce inequalities in exposure to poverty, stunting, home stimulation and early education, in order to improve early childhood development. More investments are needed to improve and expand measures relevant to ECD in LMICs.
