Enabling young children to achieve their full developmental potential is a human right and a central part of sustainable development. Given the critical importance of enabling children to make the best start in life,  the health sector, among other sectors, has an important role and responsibility to support nurturing care for early childhood development.

This guideline provides direction for strengthening policies and programmes to better address early childhood development. It includes four recommendations aimed at caregivers, health professionals and other workers who can assist them, as well as policy-makers and other stakeholders.
