WHO Meeting: Operationalizing Nurturing Care, July-August 2017
Due to the increasing response of the global community to the convergence between scientific evidence and political commitment to promote, protect, and support Early Childhood Development, the World Health Organization (WHO) organized a technical meeting on “Operationalizing Nurturing Care”. The meeting was held in Geneva between July 31 and August 2, 2017. The aim of the meeting was to review scientific and programmatic evidence of effective approaches to reach caregivers and children with a core package of interventions that support nurturing care. It was a first step towards the development of implementation guidance for policy makers and program managers on how to operationalize nurturing care and support optimal development of children in the critical early years of life.
