A guidance note: Operationalizing Nurturing Care for Early Childhood Development

UNICEF and relevant partners in the Nurturing Care Framework issued a guidance note about the role of the health sector alongside other sectors and actors. This guidance note specifically targets the health sector and aims to catalyze country-level dialogue and action focusing on health service delivery and systems strengthening while also outlining complementary actions by other sectors. It is relevant for national governments, specifically ministries of health, and for national and global development partners and other stakeholders. This guidance note is the first in a series of resources for all relevant sectors that will become available to facilitate the operationalization of the Framework. Key sectors that should engage in this operationalization include health, nutrition, education and protection.
