How does your innovation work?
The innovators will test an intervention that deliver health messages and practical skills to women on early child development. It is expected that the mothers will, in turn, train their male partners and other caregivers within the context of the home setting. The mothers would be trained in communication and negotiation skills to better prepare them for the home engagement process with their male partners and other caregivers.

Stage 2: Research & Development

An old African proverb reads: ""It takes a village to raise a child"". All extended family members can play a vital role as caregivers to young children. This project builds on that traditional concept by zooming in on the existing child welfare clinics in Nigeria. Currently, these clinics leave little room for fathers and other caregivers to participate in health education and infant care. Poor stimulation and reduced social interaction at an early age can have lasting effects.
