The best opportunity to build a strong foundation for lifelong health and wellbeing occurs during the first 1000 days – the period from conception, throughout pregnancy, and during a child’s first two years.
This Policy Brief outlines the implications of this critical time, identifies factors that place children at risk, and recommends a coordinated approach that addresses children’s needs in order to optimise their health and wellbeing, now and into the future.
Please note: this Policy Brief is derived from The First Thousand Days: An Evidence Paper
