Dear HIFA-Zambia and CHIFA colleagues,
Forwarded from Child Health Task Force
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend today's fascinating webinar hosted by the Re-imagining the Package of Care for Children Subgroup on the advantages of integrated health models in response to COVID-19. You can view a recording of the webinar here, using the Passcode: .3G9JvAn.
We heard from Healthy Learners in Zambia about their school-based community health program and its impact during the COVID-19 pandemic and schools' re-opening. Their presentation was followed by reflections from Pascale Wagner, from PCI in Guatemala, and Oya Afsar from UNICEF providing a global outlook on schools, child health and COVID-19. I have attached the presentation slides from today to this email. Both the recording and the slides are also available on the Re-imagining the Package of Care subgroup page [https://www.childhealthtaskforce.org/subgroups/expansion] on our website.
Feel free to check out the Healthy Learners website [https://www.healthylearners.org/] for more information about their work. We also wanted to share a journal article mentioned during the webinar on Comprehensive school-based health programs to improve child and adolescent health: Evidence from Zambia [https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0217893].
Best wishes, Neil
