Compliance with Ethical Standards
: The authors declare that they have no competing interests.
: The community health agents gave written consent to participate in the outreach program and consent to be involved in the performance evaluation.

The ethics committee from the Research and Institutional Ethics Committee of National Hospital San Bartolome (Hospital Nacional Docente Madre Niño San Bartolome) provided original approval for the community outreach program and child development evaluations and activities (approval Exp. N 00445-17).
