Country Profiles Aim to Advance Nurturing Care for Improved Early Childhood Development

Early childhood is a critical stage of human development, and policy makers need information on gaps and opportunities in programming within countries. USAID Advancing Nutrition has released country profiles for BangladeshCambodiaEthiopiaKenyaKyrgyz RepublicRwanda, and Uganda. These profiles are the first in a series of publications that gather and present country-level data, policies, and programs focused on improving nutrition and early childhood development outcomes through the provision of nurturing care. The country profiles serve as a light touch landscape analysis compiling national data on nurturing care and early childhood development (ECD) alongside information on national policies and programs to help identify the needs and opportunities for promoting optimal child development.
