Promoting early childhood development globally through caregiving interventions
The supplement honors Sally Grantham-McGregor for her pioneering work in early child development. It comprises of three commentaries and twelve articles. The commentaries highlight the central role of the family in building successful pathways for young children, the unmet needs of childcare for young children throughout the world, and strategies to implement caregiving and early intervention programs at scale. The articles explore implementation of Reach Up in multiple low- and middle-income countries. The papers illustrate how Reach Up can be bundled, such as with nutrition, mental health and violence prevention interventions, and delivered through multiple platforms, including home visits, group settings, and health facility contacts and community outreach.
