It is incumbent on physicians who care for patients with CHD to be mindful of the effects that disease of organs other than the heart may have on the well-being of adults with CHD.

Evidence indicates that actions to improve early child development have the most cost-effective impact on health equity (9,10,12,20). Children’s social, educational and health care needs are closely intertwined. Thus, inadequate socioeconomic conditions, care, health, nutrition and physical and emotional nurturing can reduce educational attainment by impairing cognitive and behavioural capacities, delaying motor (...) programmes should be considered (Case study 3). The most successful programmes place a strong focus on cognitive outcomes, which are more malleable earlier in life. More information on the importance of these approaches for SROI is provided in the linked report on investment for health and well-being (12). Such programmes provide disadvantaged children with an enriched out-of-family environment while also working to raise the quality of the home environment (22). Home visiting improves service uptake
