Abstract

Advocating for greater priority for family and child health and wellbeing policy at the system level in the United States raises the question: How have policy norms and recognition for policy and systems shifted in other countries and internationally to support family and child health and wellbeing (FCHW)? What transferable learning is there for the USA? Following the development of an analytic framework, this paper reports on challenges and opportunities for increased policy recognition of FCHW within the USA at national (federal) and state levels and in other low-, middle- and high-income countries. It reviews how FCHW is prioritised and how contextual factors and understandings of FCHW vary across settings and countries. It discusses potential learning for the USA from countries that have implemented policies and programmes to promote FCHW. This review adds to and will be triangulated with evidence from separate papers in the project to identify countries, areas of focus and key informants for case studies in policy recognition of FCHW.
