Improved Learning through better Health, Nutrition and Education for the School-Age Child.
37 school health and nutrition (SHN) specialists from governments and NGOs in 13 countries joined the 7th Annual SHN training course to building their knowledge and professional capacity on issues focusing on early childhood development and adolescent health.
The internationally renowned course is designed to develop the capacity of SHN stakeholders from all stages in their career to implement effective and sustainable SHN policies and programmes.
With a focus on shared learning, policy analysis and the latest tools and practices, the course covered health and nutrition management in schools and the importance of SHN policy, skills based health education, school-based health services and a safe school environment.
Sessions on action planning and policy analysis enabled delegates to identify challenges and opportunities for strengthening SHN activities in the own countries. At the end of the week participants developed and presented practical action plans to apply some of the techniques and approaches learnt throughout the week.
The 7 day course included interactive lectures, discussions, presentations and field experiences. Materials from the course can be downloaded below:
