Analysis of Public Policy on Extending Early Childhood Care and Development Services to Prevent Gender-Biased Sex Selection

The present public policy analysis was prepared by the International Center for Human Development in close collaboration with the Working Group set up to implement the Program to Prevent Sex-Selective Abortions. In fact, the analysis ranges among the most successful efforts in recent years in collaboration among relevant specialists, NGOs, governmental agencies, international development partners and other stakeholders overcoming the most dangerous challenges facing the public at large. The analysis report and the data, information, evidence, findings and recommendations therein will lay a solid and reliable foundation for mapping out and implementing a public policy on setting up an early childhood care and development system, introducing service models and outlining further actions to achieve enhanced women’s labor force participation and work-family reconciliation, a primary objective of combating gender-biased sex-selection.
