We have a large number of people who are translating our booket, 'The 100
health messages for children to learn and share'. The booklet is
available in 18 languages and once these new translations are complete we
will have 13 more.
Spanish and Italian have just been completed and I'm wanting people with a
medical background to take a careful look at each to check the messages are
clear and accurate.
If you think you can help, please can you get in touch.

After an MA in Education in Developing Countries and for many years, Clare worked for The Child-to-Child Trust based at the University of London’s Institute of Education where, alongside Hugh Hawes and Professor David Morley she worked to help embed the Child-to-Child ideas of childrens participation in health – into government and non-government child health and education programmes in numerous countries. Clare has worked with these ideas alongside vulnerable groups of children such as refugees and street children. Since her MSc in International Maternal and Child Health, Clare has worked freelance and focuses on helping government and non-government programmes to design and deliver child-centered health and education programmes where children are active participants.
