Childhood poverty is a serious issue across the world. For children, poverty is defined as the deprivation of necessary aspects of life such as, nutrition, health, water, education, or shelter. According to Unicef, 47 percent of those living in extreme poverty are 18 years old or younger which means that nearly 385 million children are living in poverty worldwide (based on data from 89 countries).This is a staggering result as this means that children account for almost half of the world’s extreme poor. According to the World Bank Group and Unicef, the youngest children are the worst off. More than one-fifth of children under the age of five in the developing countries face extreme poverty compared to 15% of 15-17 year old that live in poverty.It is appalling that children, as young as five years old are in danger.
3.8 MAGNITUDE OF THE PROBLEM Childhood pneumonia is the single most leading cause of death among under-five children. According to 2000 WHO report around 156 million new episodes of childhood pneumonia occurred globally, in that 95% of them in developing countries, out of the above-mentioned cases 8.7% of pneumonia are life threatening and required hospital admissions (Rudan,2008). The incidence was estimated at 0.29 episodes per child-year in developing and 0.05 episodes per child year in developed countries (Rudan et al.2013). In the year 2010 the incidence was 0.22 episodes per child-year though it is reduced from the year 2000, it remains an important public health problem (CHERG, 2013). Africa and Southeast Asia are responsible for 70% of the worldwide deaths due to pneumonia (Singh 2005).

In the article, Joint Attention- Making Eye Contact a Reinforcer, J. Castellani outlines the importance of joint attention. Castellani goes on to highlight a few examples of ways a parent can build this social reinforcement. Research has linked joint attention to future development of skills, including symbolic abilities, language abilities, and general social-cognitive processes.

The Tusla report What Works in Family Support (2013) refers to the work of Gardner (2003) who stressed that in order to prove their worth, services need to offer very clear evidence that the service is really achieving its aims in supporting children and families ‘in ways which conform to or exceed acknowledged practice standards and optimal cost’. In referring to research done by Mc Donald (2001) it also identifies evidence based practice as one which demonstrates an approach to decision making which is ‘transparent, accountable and based on careful consideration of the most compelling evidence we have about the effects of particular interventions on the welfare of individuals, groups and communities’ Because Child Development Initiatives such as the Healthy School Programme were funded using tax payers’ money, €12,650 per school for one year (CDI Healthy Schools Policy Brief 2012) transparency and accountability had to be high on the agenda of CDI

This stage is the initial stage and is considered to be the foundation for the overall enhancement; it is regarding all the concepts such as learning, knowledge, understanding, health, culture and living a meaningful life.
