Throughout the year, the BCN Secretariat disseminates the latest research, tools, news, videos, opportunities and events, and other resources related to children's care around the globe through its monthly newsletter. The newsletter membership has expanded from just over 300 participants in 2003 to over 4,500 across 67 countries in 2021.
Special Issues of the newsletter are also published, often in partnership with key actors in the sector, focusing on a particular theme, country or region to draw attention to the growing body of knowledge developing on the issue or context and to help busy practitioners keep abreast of learning and changes. If you want to share a resource or propose a theme for a special issue, please contact us at email@example.com
