The global school health and nutrition resource, a collaboration between Partnership for Child Development (PCD), World Bank, World Food Programme

Improving the way news and information on the health, nutrition and education of school-age children around the world is disseminated remains as vital as ever," said PCD’s Executive Director, Lesley Drake. She continued, "The new website allows quality assured, academically reviewed SHN resources, data and information to be distinguished from the multitude of information now available online; ensuring the SHN community has easy access to what they are looking for.”

Selected New Features Improving Accessibility

Documents and Resource Centre: The revitalised Documents and Resource Centre holds over an impressive 670 resources - twice as many relevant SHN relevant resources as previously displayed. These range in topic from: examples of good programming practice and policy, case studies, technical reviews, toolkits and guidelines, reports, surveys, advocacy tools and international declarations. Within the centre details including description, topic, title and author are outlined for each document allowing information to be easily viewed prior to download. Searches can also be categorized by SHN theme, language and year.

Reflecting recent SHN expansion, the site now encompasses an inclusive education section.

News & Events Section: Global and country specific school health news continues to be displayed in a new appealing format through the website’s news and events section holding almost 200 diverse SHN news articles which can be easily viewed collectively as well as in detail individually.
