FRESH School Health and Nutrition (SHN) Webinar: Inter-Agency Responses and Guidance on COVID-19 for Schools - April 2020

  • What health actions should be prioritized by schools during the prevention, response, and recovery stages of this pandemic?
  • How can different bodies work together to maximize resources?
  • How to adapt school health work in a socially distant environment?

Join us to discuss Save the Children's and UNICEF's responses to the recent COVID-19 pandemic. We will present technical guidance and tools to support schools in addressing the competing priorities associated with a pandemic response to ensure the well-being and safety of their population.  We will also commemorate World Health Day (April 7), whose theme this year is Support Nurses and Midwives
