Project Description

The Nurturing Care Framework for Early Childhood Development, which was launched at the World Health Assembly in Geneva on May 23rd 2018, provides an evidence-based roadmap for action. It outlines how policies and services can support parents, families, other caregivers and communities in providing nurturing care for young children. The Framework also calls for effective national programmes that are driven by strong and sustained political commitment and a determination to reduce inequity, poverty and social injustice, drawing on best practices from across high-, middle- and low-income countries.
