Abstract

This paper contributes longitudinal research evidence on the impact of structural inequalities on children’s development within households and communities; the ways access to health, education and other key services may reduce or amplify inequalities; and especially evidence on the ways that children’s developmental trajectories diverge from early in life, through to early adulthood. The paper is based primarily on findings from Young Lives, an ongoing four country, two cohort, fifteen- year longitudinal study of 12,000 children growing up in poverty, in diverse sites in Ethiopia, India (in the State of Andhra Pradesh1), Peru and Vietnam (see www.younglives.org.uk)
