Workshop participants engaging in how to scale up Early Childhood Development in Brazil

Scaling Children’s Health with Crianca Feliz

Crianca Feliz is a program established by the Fundación Maria Cecilia Souto Vidigal to support early childhood development. It has been implemented by the government at the municipal level in Brazil. However, the program’s success and its integrative approach, which pulls in health, education and social welfare stakeholders, has resulted in an interest in scaling the program throughout Brazil.

IMAGO worked with key stakeholders and policy makers to apply the scaling up framework to the Crianca Feliz program and understand the key actors necessary to for the program to succeed as it grows.
