WHO launches Guideline on Improving ECD

WHO has launched its Guideline on Improving Early Childhood Development using the Nurturing Care Framework (NCF). Said Guideline contains a set of recommendations to reinforce responsive caregiving, early learning, integrated caregiving and nutrition interventions, and support to maternal mental health.

The WHO Guideline also contains research gaps that require further study and implementation considerations at the national and family levels. Countries are encouraged to adapt the recommendations based on national and local circumstances.

You can find the Guideline here.
