The Convention of the Rights of the Child includes the right of every child to survive and thrive or to be supported to reach their best developmental potential. Within the Global Strategy for Women’s Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016-2030), this is recognised through goal 4 and several other goals which aim to ensure that all children have access to ‘good-quality’ early child development. What does this mean for child health research, policy and programming in the SDG era? This event aims to explore this question through dynamic interdisciplinary discussion, engaging experts in the field and showcasing recent research activities of several groups within the LSHTM.
