Envisioning a Budget For The Future of Our Children

More than two years after the COVID-19 pandemic began, many parts of society are still feeling the ripple effects of lockdowns, especially children. However, experts have highlighted time and time again that we have not done enough to ensure that our children are not left behind, whether it’s their education, health, or general well-being.

We find out from Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh, consultant paediatrician and advisor with the National Early Childhood Intervention Council.
