Advocacy Brief

The importance of investing in the wellbeing of children to avert the learning crisis

Through the joint position paper, UNESCO, UNICEF, WFP and WHO, urge governments and the international community to uphold these commitments and to consider school health and nutrition services as a critical part of national response and recovery plans and global recovery agendas. Leaders are asked to advance an equitable, inclusive and progressive approach to education that includes comprehensive, integrated school health and nutrition programmes, so as to ensure that all children and young people have the required conditions to learn and thrive.
