The international commitment to “Early Childhood Development” (ECD) is now enshrined in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The Lancet prepared a special series on ECD that proposed a scientific basis for future ECD scale up. A launch of the Spanish version of The Lancet series took place at the University Iberoamericana in Mexico City in March 2017, with funding from the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science. Dr. Gilles Bergeron, Executive Director of the Sackler Institute, was invited to introduce the event, which was attended by more than 350 officials from civil society, the Mexican government, international organizations, and academic institutions. More information on The Lancet Series on ECD is available here. The report from the Mexico City launch is available here in Spanish.
