Writing

\captionof{table}{\textbf{Summary of key ECD interventions in Cuba.}}

is a mistake. You should be writing

\caption{\textbf{Summary of key ECD interventions in Cuba.}}\\

Note the pair of backslash characters after the argument of \caption.

The macro \captionof{<float type>}{<text of caption>} should only be used if the object being captioned (a) shouldn't "float" (in the LaTeX-specific sense of the word) and (b) doesn't provide its own captioning mechanism. Since the longtable environment doesn't "float" but definitely does provide a \caption mechanism, using \captionof is not a good idea for a longtable.

The following screenshot shows just the first few rows of the 1.5 page longtable. Note that I've applied a few changes (beyond switching from \captionof to \caption) to the give the table a less-cramped "look". For instance, I've eliminated all \cline directives, I set a positive value for the parameter \extrarowheight, and I set up a version of the p column type that typesets its material in ragged-right rather than in fully-justified mode.
