AHD Executive Director is one of the co-authors of the new series on early childhood development by The Lancet, one of the world’s oldest and best known general medical journals.

Prof. Stephen Lye: “We have a growing understanding of the importance of early childhood development and the first 1000 days of life, beginning right from the fertilization of the egg, on brain development. By the age of three, 85 per cent of brain development will be complete.”

The series was launched at a conference on “Advancing Early Childhood Development: from Science to Scale,” hosted by the UNICEF, the World Bank and the WHO on October 5, 2016 where Steve Lye delivered a presentation on the importance of ECD.
