Welcome to the Partnership for Child Development
Academic excellence, technical expertise and high level networks: a unique partnership for child development.
Healthy children learn better. School health and nutrition (SHN) interventions have been shown to improve not only children’s health and nutrition, but also their learning potential and life choices both in the short- and long-term. As such, they are recognised as making a significant contribution towards countries’ efforts to achieve Education for All (EFA) and their Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The Partnership for Child Development (PCD) works with governments, communities and agencies to enable effective and sustainable SHN programmes to be delivered to millions of children around the world.
