Zambia National Consultation to Accelerate Care Reform

Government of Zambia, Better Care Network, and others

The Government of Zambia - along with many other partners including Better Care Network, the Global Social Service Workforce Alliance, GHR Foundation, USAID, UNICEF, Save the Children and other NGOs - convened a National Consultation to Accelerate Care Reform in Zambia from 4-6 May, 2016. The consultation aimed to jointly identify national priorities for action in order to accelerate child care reform in Zambia. The main focus areas and questions of the consultation were:

  • What evidence do we have about child care reform? And how can we build and share the evidence base?  

  • How can we build capacity for family strengthening and alternative care?

  • How can we strengthen advocacy efforts to accelerate the child care reform process?

The consultation culminated in a Call to Action that recognized policies currently in place to support children and families, but also urged government, civil society and all stakeholders working with children to support the implementation of a set of strategic actions to accelerate child care reform in Zambia.

Presentations from the Consultation included:
