This is the orientation to the Nurturing Care Handbook. It provides an overview of how the Handbook works, what nurturing care is, and how to get started. It also includes practical advice on working in programme cycles, engaging all stakeholders, and doing advocacy.
This guide corresponds to the first strategic action in the Nurturing Care Framework. The other four strategic actions depend on Lead and Invest, making it essential for any national initiative that supports nurturing care. This guide explores how to do governance, planning, and financing.
