Join the World Health Organization for the launch webinar of the WHO Global Scales for Early Development.

Despite growing interest in early childhood development, globally validated tools to assess the development of children under the age of three ​at population and programmatic level remain scarce.

WHO is launching a new measure tool: Global Scales for Early Development (GSED) that allows us to measure, evaluate and monitor children's progress along a range of areas in the vital first three years of their lives. GSED is culturally neutral, easy to administer, open access and understandable to caregivers and children.

Hear from programme implementers, investors and researchers on how GSED has the potential to change the way we measure early development to better support children and their families.
