The World Health Organization and UNICEF have launched two new resources to support implementation of the Nurturing Care Framework

The Nurturing Care Handbook is organized around five strategic actions. There is a separate guide for each and Start Here is designed to work in combination with any – or all – of them. For each strategic action, the guides include: overviews, suggested actions, common barriers, tools and checklists for common tasks, indicators for monitoring progress, links to helpful articles and websites, and case studies, showing how governments and other stakeholders around the world can put nurturing care into practice.

The Nurturing Care Practice Guide is designed for managers and service providers who are responsible for or provide health and nutrition services for young children and their caregivers at any level. It responds to requests from practitioners and country teams who have learned about the Nurturing Care Framework and want to understand how to adapt health and nutrition services to be supportive of nurturing care and strengthen caregivers’ capacity.
