Improving Early Childhood Development: An Integrated Program for the Philippines, Page 54
This book suggests that the Philippines should be investing more in child development and that doing so will have a high payoff. The objective is to convince those who control resources in the central and local governments, and in the nongovernmental and donor communities, that they should finance an integrated investment package that has a real prospect of meeting the national goals for children. The chapters of this book include: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "The Situation of Children in the Philippines"; (3) "Government Policies, Goals, and Intervention Programs"; (4) "Creating an Integrated, National Early Childhood Development Program"; and (5) "Financing Early Childhood Development." A list of acronyms and abbreviations accompanies the text. (Contains approximately 150 references.) (EH)
