Global agendas are expanding their focus to ensure that women and babies not only survive but also thrive and reach their full potential for health and well-being. And recognize the ante and postnatal period as a critical time for women and newborns, partners, parents, caregivers and families.
The burden of maternal and child mortality and morbidity remains unacceptably high. Coverage and quality of ante and postnatal care for women and child care tend to be relatively poor. Due to this the focus of maternal and child care and the awareness around it is heavily tilted towards prevention of mortality and morbidity rather than promotion of health.
The first 1,000 days - the period from conception covering the pregnancy and the child’s first two years of life - represent a crucial window of opportunity for facilitating optimal growth and development of children. An eclectic approach with an entire range of opportunities to increase well-being of mothers before, during and after pregnancy and support nurturing newborn care is vital.
