Foundation of Workforce Development

“A vital and productive society with a prosperous and sustainable future is built on a foundation of healthy child development. Health in the earliest years—beginning with the future mother’s well-being before she becomes pregnant — lays the groundwork for a lifetime of the physical and mental vitality that is necessary for a strong workforce and responsible participation in community life.”
