A Proven Implementation Approach

The CEPPs implementation approach is proven

The CEPPs are based on successful models for early parenting and childhood education and care already implemented in developed countries including:

  • The 1001 Critical Days Cross-Party Initiative in the United Kingdom.
  • The National Centre on Early Prevention in Germany. The Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) and the German Youth Institute (DJI) jointly operate the multiprofessional “National Centre on Early Prevention” (NZFH). The Centre began its work in March 2007 and operates within each city, across all 16 states.
  • The Chile Crece Contigo (‘Chile Grows with You’) social policy initiative launched by the Government of Chile, promoting full support for the country’s children from birth. It which was launched by President Michelle Bachelet and is the first of its kind in Latin America.
  • Maternity Programs by major Health Maintenance Organisations in the USA

These have been adapted for use internationally, in developed and developing countries.

The scientific, health and social care approaches are based on evidence and research from numerous studies by internationally recognised authorities and validated by practice in the field. They identify the events and factors that have a material impact on the physical, emotional and mental health of future generations.

International implementation follows the model used by the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), developed in partnership with UN Women in 2004 and introduced on International Women’s Day in 2010, Over that period the WEPs have been endorsed by over 1,300 business leaders from around the world for promoting gender equality in the workplace. http://www.weprinciples.org/. The CEPPs is expected to be endorsed in a similar manner.
