Project Lead(s): Stella Hartinger
In rural Peru, health risks like poor indoor air quality and inadequate access to safe water and improved sanitation can threaten early childhood development.
This innovation focuses on improving two critical foundations for healthy child development: parent-child relationships through promoting responsive and stable caregiving, and environmental risks like indoor air quality and access to running water. The project also emphasizes hand hygiene, thereby reducing environmental risks and creating safe, supportive physical environments where children can thrive, play and develop to their cognitive potential.
It is expected that 160 children and 800 family members will receive the intervention.
