ECD and Stunting: Lessons from Peru, Ghana and Chile. ECD and Stunting: Lessons from Peru, Ghana and Chile.

Stunting in early life—particularly in the first 1,000 days (from conception until the age of two)—has negative consequences for children, including poor cognition and educational performance, low adult wages, lost productivity and an increased risk of chronic diseases in adult life. Addressing stunting requires a broad, inter-sectoral and inclusive strategy involving a range of stake-holders. Despite the high numbers of stunted children globally, some countries are doing much better than others in addressing the problem and this paper reviews interventions in Ghana, Peru and Chile.
