Stage 2: Research & Development
The innovators are creating an intervention that aims to engage private clinics to promote optimal early development of young children in poor urban environments, through an integrated package of mother and child care.
How does your innovation work?
In Pakistan, as in most developing countries, early child development is a neglected area of public health. Malnutrition and a mother’s incapability to supply effective care can contribute significantly to development delays in children. The Association for Social Development is creating an intervention care package of child and mother care that will have three main components: information on nutrition, information on child development and screening and management of maternal depression.
