This webinar aimed to kickstart ARNEC, UNICEF EAPRO and Save the Children’s Asia-Pacific regional initiative around advocating for young children’s rights to clean, safe and sustainable environments, focused on climate change and environmental risks/challenges (indoor and outdoor pollution, a lack of clean and protective play and recreation spaces and exposure to environmental toxins such as lead and mercury).

The goal of this webinar was to disseminate findings from two studies recently conducted in Kenya and Mozambique, which examine the acceptability and feasibility, facilitators and barriers, as well as initial outcomes of integrating monitoring and counseling on child development into routine health services. 

The Countdown to 2030 national, equity and early childhood development profiles was launched on 14 December 2021. This webinar explained how the profiles can be used for programming and advocacy, and how they complement the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent Health profiles.

The 4th International Developmental Pediatrics Association (IDPA) Congress was held on December 2-5, 2021. IDPA and the Arab Network for Early Childhood Development (ANECD) hosted the event, bringing together clinicians, researchers, and policymakers working for child development and disabilities from around the world. The theme for 2021 is ‘Nurturing Children in Crisis’.

This event offered health policymakers, programme managers, emergency officers, MNCH programme implementers, health professionals, researchers, development and funding partners an opportunity to interact with Ministries of Health and implementers from 19 countries and to discuss strategies to strengthen health systems and enable them to respond rapidly and build back better.

This conference provided an opportunity to discuss ECD programs in Kenya, innovations and challenges, creating resolutions to establish a holistic/multi-sectoral approach for implementing the Nurturing Care Framework.

ECD implementers and researchers were invited to join a discussion on translating knowledge to inform policy and practice. This webinar looked at what knowledge translation means, barriers, facilitators, and opportunities for translating knowledge to practice, and what is currently being done to address existing gaps
