Healthy Start: A promising program example from the Philippines

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Healthy Start (HS), a program run by the Consuelo Foundation in the Philippines, was selected as a noteworthy practice in early 2010. The resulting qualitative research project undertook to document the program through observational site visits, interviews, and focus group discussions with key stakeholders at each level of the program's implementation. HS is an intensive, community-based home visiting program that enrolls pregnant women and families with newborns and provides support for healthy family and child development during the first three years of the child's life. The Foundation partners with local non-governmental organizations to implement the program in highly diverse settings and with families who are vulnerable across a wide variety of domains. Six noteworthy program elements were identified during the documentation process: (1) HS addresses health, nutrition, & early stimulation, starts prenatally, and also focuses on the baby and her family, (2) HS stands apart for it's attention to the most vulnerable marginalized populations: tribal groups, religious minorities, pregnant teenagers, the rurally isolated, and urban slum dwellers, (3) participating families benefit from strong, trusting, and empathetic relationships with the Family Support Workers, (4) HS incorporates developmental assessment to formally monitor child development and tailor programming to each individual partner family, (5) the program is highly localized down to the site-level and thus closely reflects families' needs, (6) HS is grounded in strong partnerships, which enhances program offerings, helps to leverage resources more effectively, and lays important groundwork for an operationally independent program in the mid- tolong-term future.
