Integration of ECD Interventions into Health and Nutrition Services

December 4, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EST

On Monday, December 5, the Child Health Task Force is hosting a webinar showcasing examples of how ECD interventions can be integrated into health and nutrition services.

Momentum for integrating elements of the Nurturing Care framework that support early childhood development (ECD) outcomes, such as responsive care and early learning, into existing health and nutrition services is growing. Sharing these integration experiences will support practitioners to learn from and apply these approaches to their own context.

This virtual event will offer an opportunity to learn from three such examples:

  1. the Nurturing Care Group Model implemented by Support to the Productive Safety Net Program (SPSNP) II, a USAID-funded Resilience Food Security Activity in Ethiopia;
  2. integration of ECD interventions with Transform Nutrition’s ongoing nutrition, sanitation, and hygiene activities in Mozambique; and
  3. a psychosocial stimulation approach for children with severe wasting in Burkina Faso.

  • Cat Kirk, Senior Early Childhood Care and Development Advisor, USAID
  • Abdoulaye Haro, MPH Nutritionist, Nutrition Directorate, Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene of Burkina Faso
  • Higino Andre, Chief of Party, Transform Nutrition, ADPP – Mozambique
