Cultural Adaptation of PLH for Young Children in Latin America
PLH-YC was perceived as valuable and relevant by most research participants. The region offers fertile ground where PLH can help families build strong relationships to keep children safe and enable them to thrive. However, some cultural adaptations are needed to fit the lifestyles of local caregivers better and to adjust and take advantage of the available human and financial resources. Moreover, specific adaptations for each country will require additional formative research and close collaboration with local stakeholders. The research team produced an adaptation report that implementors need to consider when piloting PLH-YC in the region. PLH-YC adapted materials can be found on the Pan-American Health Organization Website.
