Under the project, 70 percent of children from 0 to 8 years will equal access health care, education and protection services, and social welfare.

Also, 70 percent of officials working in child-related sectors and parents will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to support children’s comprehensive development.

Half of centrally-run cities and provinces will set up networks of care for comprehensive child development, and pilot the model at home and in the community.

To that end, by 2025, the project will focus on communication work to raise public awareness of care for comprehensive child development in early years.

In Vietnam, close to 25 percent of children under five years of age suffer from stunting. Approximately 77 percent of preschool-age children (aged 3-5) and 13 percent of kindergarten kids (aged under 3) do not attend any formal pre-learning programme.

Every year, about 2,000 children experience violence and abuse and 170,000 others are without parental care.
