The Young Child: Approaches to Action in Developing Countries. A Draft Report and Recommendations by the Executive Director.
United Nations Children's Fund, New York, NY.
This draft report was prepared to review ways to improve the quality of care for young children (up to six years of age) in developing countries. Some suggestions are presented for consideration by these countries in establishing policies and expanding services and programs. Recommendations are included concerning UNICEF child assistance policies. The vulnerability of the young child and his special needs are discussed, particularly those for which more effective and practical action can be taken by developing countries with some help from UNICEF and other outside assistance. Discussions focus on the young child in deprived population groups, community involvement in improving the well-being of the family; and measures to increase the mother's capacity to look after her children and provide her with greater opportunities for education. A short bibliography of sources for further technical and operational information is included. (Author/CS)
