Excerpts from the press release: The President of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, introduced Chile Grows with You, a social initiative that offers integral support for all the nation's children from birth. "With 'Chile Grows with You,' we are offering the population of young children an integral system of interventions and social services that support children and families starting with prenatal care, giving them the tools necessary to develop their potential to the maximum," she commented. The President stated that the initiative was the culmination of "one of the most fervent commitments that I made during my presidential campaign: laying the foundations of an integral system to protect children and ensure equality from the beginning, protection, and equitable conditions for the development of our children, which we are all hoping for."
