Surviving from birth: extreme poverty compromises the development of 250 million children

first_imgMalnourished children in a nutrition center in Niger. Image: Reuters The first 1,000 days of growth are crucialIn sub-Saharan Africa 66% of children are at risk Although infant mortality has declined worldwide, approximately 250 million children (43%) in low and middle-income countries are at risk of not fulfilling their development potential due to extreme poverty and delays in growth, according to the findings of a series of three documents on early childhood development, published in the journal The Lancet.The first thousand days in a child’s life, from conception, are recognized as a crucial period of development, but many children are exposed to poor sanitation, infections, lack of affective care and inadequate stimulation during this time. The new estimates suggest that children who do not meet their development potential may lose up to a quarter of the average development capacity and that the overall cost to countries can be up to twice their national health expenditure. The findings reveal the importance of providing nutritional care – defined as care that promotes health, nutrition, safety and early learning – to help children reach their developmental potential. Although most families provide this type of care for their children, many cannot because of poverty, poor working conditions, violence or lack of support policies. The authors find that there is good evidence to support early childhood development programs but that many lack adequate funding or lack resources. “A growing number of children are surviving, but they begin their life at a disadvantage because they do not receive the nutritional care they need. Prioritizing the policies, laws and financing of early childhood development programs is essential to ensure their success , such as creating a policy environment that supports affective care, free preschool education and breastfeeding support, “says series author Linda Richter, a professor at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. “Our economic analysis shows that the cost of inaction is huge and in many countries it is much higher than your health expenditure. Supporting affective care is a good investment and should be a priority in all countries,” says the co-author of the Gary Darmstadt series, professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine in the United States. center_img Need for parenting support A new analysis, published in the magazine The Lancet Global Health To accompany the series, it offers updated estimates on the number of children at risk of poor development. While universal standards for measuring child development are not yet available, there is strong evidence that exposure to developmental slowdown and extreme poverty are associated with poorer cognitive and educational development, worse adult health and health. lower income The analysis estimates that in 2010, 249.4 million children (43%) in low and middle-income countries were at risk of poor development as a result of deficiencies and extreme poverty, having declined since those of 279.1 million in 2004 In sub-Saharan Africa, it is estimated that 66% of children are at risk of poor development due to stunted growth and poverty; 65% in South Asia, and 18% in the Caribbean and South America. The evidence strongly suggests that parents, caregivers and families need support in foster care. A number of policies are known to be effective, but there are still large differences in their dispensation, such as early schooling, since only 4% of countries provide at least one year of free preschool education and even in high-income countries , almost a third do not offer free preschool education. Only 40 countries provide the recommended amount of free preschool education at 2 years. As regards paid parental leave – which can support the union and care of young children – eight countries do not guarantee paid maternity leave and most establish a minimum of 12 weeks with the payment of at least two thirds of the salary , but without reaching the submerged economy, and only 77 countries provide some kind of parental permission. Breastfeeding reduces the risk of several childhood illnesses and improves cognitive function, so in 139 countries they guarantee breastfeeding permits for at least six months and in 43 countries the payments of those permits are guaranteed. However, this does not cover the submerged economy and many women cannot breastfeed in the workplace, do not have a place in employment where milk is extracted or does not have available refrigeration systems. Having a basic income can help provide children with basic needs such as health and education. Although minimum wage policies exist in 88% of countries, many of them do not guarantee an income that is above the poverty level of two dollars per day for a parent who supports a child. To assess the ability to pay for interventions, the authors estimated the cost of expanding two actions aimed at promoting the care of parenting and the treatment of maternal depression. The extension of coverage to 98% would have an estimated additional cost of $ 34,000 million over the next 15 years for both interventions and an additional cost of $ 0.5 per capita in 2030, or a 10% increase in spending on previously published estimates for a comprehensive set of women and children’s health services. The authors also calculated the cost of inaction. For the 249.4 million children in low- and middle-income countries at risk of poor development due to extreme poverty and stunted growth, their average income as adults per year is likely to be reduced by approximately 26%. At the national level, the cost of inaction in the future may be much higher than the current national health expenditure of some countries.last_img read more

What number could Carrasco wear with the Atlético shirt?

first_imgDalian Yifang Midfield playerBelgium Carrasco Carrasco’s return to Atlético has become one of the most surprising movements at the end of the winter market. The Belgian returns to the club rojiblanco to reinforce a very needy offensive goal zone and opens an incognito for mattress fans who want to get their shirt: What number will you wear?The 26-year-old has few alternatives on his arrival, since with the squad formed since summer the usual numbers in the strikers are taken. The ’10’ that Carrasco was wearing at the time of leaving Atlético has Correa since the summer of 2018, when he changed it to the ’11’ he had previously carried. All players of the first team (22) have their assigned number and cannot change it at their own will midway through the course. However, the number that Carrasco wore on his arrival at Atlético in the summer of 2015 If you are free to screen it on your red and white shirt: the ’21’.center_img The tip played at Atlético with that number in the 2015-16 season, where he played 43 games and scored five goals, one of them in the Champions League final against Real Madrid. From the next campaign he picked up the ’10’ of the gamer that Óliver Torres had left free and that accompanied him in his last year and a half of rojiblanco and in his two years in China. With the Belgian national team, he settled down with ’11’ behind his back after playing ‘7’, ’10’, ’18’ and ’21’ depending on the calls. That ’21’ that Lucas Hernández left free last summer At Atlético and since then nobody has picked up at the club. Carrasco during his career he also used the ’17’ in Monaco for three seasons, before catching the ’10’ in the course prior to making the jump to Atlético. The ’17’ is owned by Saponjic in the mattress template. The other two unused numbers in Atlético are Number 3′, which until summer belonged to Filipe Luis before heading to Brazil and the ’25’, which usually corresponds to the third goalkeeper of the template. Also if a last minute player came out I could give him an alternative, although it seems unlikely. If the logical canons are met, Carrasco will use the ’21’ again as he did on his arrival at the club during a course.last_img read more

The other major leagues: € 711M to cover holes

first_imgPremier League: 199 millionManchester United has been the great agitator of a fairly decaffeinated winter market in the Premier in which just 200 million euros have been spent. Ighalo arrived on loan from China a few minutes after the market closed and Bruno Fernandes, for 55 million fixed plus 25 in variables, has been the most bulky signing. For its part, Tottenham, who wanted to strengthen himself to satisfy his new coach, has been the one who has moved the most from the greats. This winter market has something exceptional. The clubs that have spent more money in each of the major European leagues, except for the Spanish one, are clubs that are not even in Champions positions in their respective countries: United (England), Hertha (Germany), Naples (Italy) and Monaco (France). Moreover, of the four, only the Red Devils are in conflict for European positions, the others are in the middle of the table. The conclusion is that none of these teams did their homework well in summer and expect to find an escape route in January to redirect the season. This is usually the most common reading of this winter window, designed to solve the shortcomings of each team in the middle of the course.In total, 711 million euros are spent by the four major leagues (not counting the Spanish), among which stands out Series A, which was the most invested: 213.Series A: 213 millionSeries A has been the protagonist of this winter market with a total investment of almost 210 million euros. It’s been a long time since January was so exciting in Bel Paese, and the Milanese clubs covered the covers: Ibrahimovic arrived as a free agent and has already changed his face to Milan, while Eriksen at Inter cost him 20 million and is one of the most prestigious additions in recent years. The arrival of Bergwijn for 30 million and that of Gedson Fernandes for 15 have underpinned a team that has to try to replace the deficiencies left by Harry Kane’s injury, despite the fact that he has not finally achieved a ‘9’ of guarantees. Arsenal, meanwhile, was finally made with the services of Pablo Marí through a transfer with purchase option.Bundesliga: 177.95 millionThe Bundesliga went to the winter market with the checkbook in hand. The 18 German clubs invested a total of 177.95 million in signings, yes, this time the most spent was the modest Berlin Hertha. Those in the capital invested 78 kilos in Piatek (it was the most expensive for 27 million), Tousart, Cunha and Ascacíbar, all thanks to the investments of the Tennor group this past summer. Juve was done with the services of Kulusevski (it will cost 40 million), which will remain in Parma until June, Gattuso’s Naples, under reconstruction after its deep crisis, invested more than 60 million (Lobotka, Demme, Politano …) and Fiorentina was also revolutionized. Commisso demonstrated its strength with six signings (including Cutrone and Duncan), which will cost almost 70 million between transfers and purchase obligations. Roma will speak more Spanish with Carles Pérez and Villar, while Lazio remained without signing, trying unsuccessfully to incorporate Giroud in extremis. The most media operation was the signing of Haaland, a jewel of Salzburg that arrived in Dortmund for 20 kilos and ended up causing the march of Alcácer to Villarreal. 20 million also cost Leipzig services with Dani Olmo, who finally left Dinamo to take the next step in his career. Todibo (Schalke), Dabbur (Hoffenheim) and Odriozola (Bayern) were the players who left LaLiga to try their luck in a Bundesliga which already has eleven Spaniards. Can closed the market leaving Juve to join Dortmund, thus closing a template that goes through the salad bowl.Ligue 1: 120 millionLLigue 1 gave the closing in the winter market with a negative balance of income and expenses. French clubs have disbursed 120 million euros, and have received only 76 million. It has been one of the markets with less movements in recent years, something unusual in the Gallic country.The star signing has been that of Bruno Guimaraes. The medium has reached € 20 million from Athletico Paranaense. The biggest sale has been that of Lucas Tousart, which has been transferred to the Hertha in Berlin for € 25 million, but will remain on loan at Lyon until the end of the season. Ligue 1 will feature a World champion, since N’Zonzi was ceded yesterday to Rennes at the last minute. Rubén Pardo, also a few minutes after the market closed, signed for Girondins.last_img read more

Messi wins the Laureus with Hamilton and tomb another wall

first_imgIn front of the longest piece of the Berlin Wall still standing, the one that forms the East Side Gallery with works by more than one hundred artists (among them the famous kiss of the communist hierarchs Honecker and Breznev) and with the river Spree acting behind as a natural border between the former GDR and western Germany, Leo Messi and football threw another wall.
