This publication, produced by the Nossa Senhora do Bom Sucesso Foundation, summarises the results of studies on the impacts of childhood interventions with a health component on health, schooling, and socioeconomic outcomes following a systematic literature review. The evidence, including cost-benefit analyses, indicates that the intervention programs in childhood show positive economic returns to society, which will be greater the sooner in the gestation or life of the children the intervention begins. The complete report in Portuguese, with an executive summary in English, is available here.
