Improving early childhood development outcomes for young children affected by HIV and AIDS.

The landscape for early childhood development (ECD) for vulnerable children affected by HIV and AIDS has changed over the past few years. There is currently unprecedented support for moving from a child survival paradigm to fostering ECD to enable children to survive and thrive, which will boost future economic prosperity in the long term. The Foundation will make investments in three inter-related focus areas: 1) advancing program approaches to improve caregiving and early learning; 2) strengthening civil society and government systems and networks; and 3) building and disseminating evidence to improve practice and policy. These three approaches will be applied in an integrated way within our five focus countries in East and Southern Africa: Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia.
