The Nurturing Care Framework consultation- Have your say and help children get the best start in life

WHO and UNICEF, supported by the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH), the ECD Action Network, and many other partners are launching a two-staged consultation on a Nurturing Care Framework for actions and results for early childhood development.

The online consultation on the Nurturing Care Framework is now open! The Framework provides a roadmap for action; to support early childhood development, especially in the first 1,000 days. It builds on state-of-the-art evidence of effective interventions and recognizes the critical importance of an enabling environment, with policies, information and services in a range of sectors including health, nutrition, education, social welfare and child protection.

The SDGs have embraced children’s development as a catalyst for the transformation we want in the next 15 years, and there is no better time than now to take action.

Consultation on the framework is open until 6 February. Participate in the online consultation here:
