Why early childhood development interventions for children affected by HIV and AIDS?

What happens early has long-term impacts. Neuroscience, behavioral, and developmental research show that during the first few years, brain architecture is built that sets the stage for life, including cognitive function that will determine success in school and beyond.

However, more than one-third of the world’s children younger than 5 years do not reach their full potential. For those affected by HIV and AIDS, the consequences are more severe.
