Scalable policies for Early Childhood Development
The second and larger study combines stimulation with nutrition communication and will focus on informing and training mothers/caregivers in sound infant and young child feeding practices that have been known to play a crucial role in under-nutrition. In this study, we will test alternative service provisions, which include delivery of the curriculum by local women. The interventions were accompanied by an evaluation based on a randomised control trial.
