Comments Off on District ECD Officer, Early Childhood Development

 

PATH is an international organization that uses innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We work in over 70 countries worldwide. In Mozambique since 2012, PATH has been supporting the national Ministry of Health and the Maputo Provincial Health Directorate (DPS) to integrate early childhood development (ECD) content into routine facility- and community-level health services. ECD content includes monitoring child development and counseling caregivers on age-appropriate play and communication activities.

Globally, the World Health Organization is promoting a concept called Nurturing Care, where it encourages governments and nongovernmental organizations to coordinate with each other to provide young children and their caregivers with an integrated package of ECD, health, nutrition, and protection services, with a view to promoting their optimal development. In Mozambique, PATH is collaborating with multiple partners to implement a 2-year pilot project in Monapo District of Nampula Province, which will build on existing partnerships and platforms in health, nutrition and child protection to reinforce ECD services for the youngest children (0–3 years), with special focus on children at risk of HIV and malnutrition. Key partners will include the Nampula DPS, Monapo district-level women, health and social action services (SDSMAS), UNICEF, ICAP, h2n (which supports community radios), and large USAID-funded projects such as the Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) and COVida.

These service providers will include nurses, technicians, community health workers (APEs), MCSP-supported nutrition activists and volunteers, COVida activists, and other community partners still to be determined. Expected project results are improved caregiver practices, improved detection and referrals of children with developmental delays, and improved capacity of providers to deliver quality ECD services and thus to promote increased satisfaction with and retention in health services.

  • Document project activities by taking photos, taking videos, and collecting human interest stories;
  • Provide other technical inputs to the project, as requested by the project coordinator;
