Evidence for Better Lives Study (EBLS)



The ‘Evidence for Better Lives Study’ (EBLS) is an innovative global birth-cohort study in eight cities across the world. In each city, the early childhood development of 1500 children within their family and community contexts will be tracked.

The study will examine exposure to violence and other adverse experiences while also striving to illuminate how families in different cultures strengthen and support their children. In each site, the study will be accompanied by efforts to introduce and evaluate multi- sectoral prevention packages that can help young children to achieve their full developmental and learning potential.
