Investing in the first years of life is one of the most economically sound and effective forms of public policy that a country can adopt. It can help to halt the intergenerational transmission of poverty, close inequality gaps and promote the overall development of the population.
This webinar presented the Peruvian experience of implementing its early development strategy, Primero la Infancia (“Childhood First”). This national strategy includes the implementation of evidence-based, results-oriented policies alongside strong political commitment and territorial management. These factors have been vital in attaining significant progress in reducing chronic child malnourishment since 2008.
