The Hesperian Foundation is especially grateful to the committed health staff of Plan International. They have been important collaborators, sharing their understanding of the needs of parents and health promoters working with children. Plan International staff in Bangladesh reviewed and field-tested early versions of this book, improving it immeasurably. In addition, Plan’s US member, Childreach, is generously helping fund the development of this series.
