Recent research from a range of disciplines (including neurodevelopment, developmental psychology and genetics), has indicated the importance of the first few years of life in terms of the quality of the parent-infant relationship, for a range of outcomes all of which are highly influential in terms of later development and wellbeing. This report contains a review of the Child Health Promotion Programme. The review involved the identification of systematic reviews of health-led parent and parenting interventions, services and programmes that were aimed at improving outcomes for parents and infants during the ante- and post-natal periods. A range of mental and physical health outcomes for mothers and fathers, and children up the age of three years, were included.
