Africa School Health and Nutrition (SHN) Short Course

Places are still available for the Partnership for Child Development’s 9thAfrican SHN Course in Ghana between 10 - 20 June 2013. Designed for educationalists, public health professionals and community development workers, this internationally acclaimed course aims to strengthen the capacity of the health and education sectors to respond effectively to the needs of school-age populations at the country level.

For ten days attendees will engage in both classroom and field based learning in which the exchange of best practice, regional knowledge and experience will be prioritised. Delegates will attend a mixture of hands-on action planning workshops and expertly facilitated lectures on a range of SHN topics. This year’s Issue in Focus is looking at the nutrition of the school-aged child and adolescent.
