Investment in health during the first 1,000 days is widely recognised as a high priority, but investments are often neglected in the following 7,000 days of middle childhood and adolescence. At least three phases are crucial to health and development during the next 7,000 days, each requiring a condition-specific and age-specific response. Broadening of investment in human development to include scalable interventions during the next 7,000 days can be achieved cost-effectively.
