Emily Delap of Child Frontiers, UNICEF Malawi country office, UNICEF ESARO, CTWWC, and the Government of Malawi,

This virtual study tour aims to provide you with an overview of care reform in Malawi from the comfort of your own home. Care reform relates to the care of children. It refers to efforts to improve the legal and policy frameworks, structures, services, supports and resources that determine and deliver alternative care, prevent family separation and support families to care for children well.

The focus of the workshop was on care measurement initiatives in Eastern and Southern Africa and Thailand.

Adrian D. van Breda & John Pinkerton - Emerging Adulthood,

The special issue of Emerging Adulthood titled “Care-Leaving in Africa” is the first collection of essays on care-leaving by African scholars.
