Dr. Rafael Pérez-Escamilla, professor at the Yale School of Public Health,  has been appointed by the World Health Organization to serve in the Steering Committee of the Special Lancet series on “Improving the Development of Young Children through Integrated Interventions: A Vital Ingredient for Equity and Sustainable Development Post-2015.” The goal of this forthcoming series is to synthesize and integrate the science of early child development and the critical factors that influence life course health and productivity starting in early childhood, and how integrated interventions can be designed, delivered, and evaluated at a scale that matches the magnitude of the problems and the human and social costs of inaction.
