Call to Action: Implementing the Nurturing Care Framework in Ghana

Publish Date: September 2019

The Government of Ghana (GOG) has made a strong commitment to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically SGD 4 regarding access to quality ECD services. Recently, the GOG reaffirmed this commitment through dedication of personnel and coordination mechanisms to rollout the Nurturing Care Framework in Ghana.

This investment is a critical first step given the cross-sectoral nature of the Framework, which requires engagement and synchronization from health, nutrition, protection, early learning and child protection professionals in order to realize its full potential. To move the Framework forward, GHS calls upon other government agencies, donors, non-governmental actors and the media to significantly increase actions, investments, and attention to ECD in Ghana, especially for children under three years old.
