On the 18th of May, CHIFA will be holding a webinar on Children’s Participation in Action and Learning for Nutrition (PCAAN), a program run by Children for Health in partnership with the Government of Mozambique. This event is free.

Time of the webinar:

13.00 GMT / 9.00 New York / 10.00 Buenos Aires, Río de Janeiro / 13.00 Accra / 14.00 London / 15.00 Johannesburg / 16.00 Istanbul / 18.00 Islamabad / 20.00 Jakarta / 21.00 Beijing / 22.00 Tokyo / 23:00 Sydney.


In some districts of Mozambique, 44% of all children under 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition. Children for Health understands that school-going children are often carers of these young children and can be mobilised to learn about and address nutrition problems and influence family nutrition practices. Therefore, Children for Health has been working with educators at all levels to embed a participatory approach to nutrition education in 15 primary schools in Mozambique. The approach has been shown to have a positive impact on food choices, breastfeeding and hygiene practices.

In this webinar:

Clare and Bibiche will give an overview of the PCAAN programme and the innovative training methods it uses, and set out the findings from a 2016 evaluation of the PCAAN programme.
