Please join Health Systems for Early Child Development for a webinar on the power of parenting in the early years, to launch UNICEF’s new Parenting Support Framework for Europe and Central Asia.

Parents are vital to a child’s development but often lack the necessary resources and support to provide optimal nurturing care. Parental well-being is also crucial for effective parenting. By providing parents with information, services, programmes, and resources, we can boost their confidence, skills, and overall well-being, allowing them to offer better nurturing care to their children.

To best support young children and families, countries need a coherent, multi-sectoral approach to transform parenting support into effective programs, services, and policies, as current efforts are often fragmented and ineffective.

This webinar will launch the new parenting support framework developed by the UNICEF Europe and Central Asia Regional Office, present key findings, and aim to cultivate a shared understanding of the issue by:

  • Discussing multi-sectoral support for parents and early childhood parenting
  • Sharing best practices for countries providing multi-sectoral support
  • Facilitating a broader conversation among technical colleagues from ministries, academia, INGOs, NGOs, partners, and multilateral organizations involved in parenting support programs.
