  6. Our Talks: Supporting parent-child communication on sexual and reproductive health and rights

    Our Talks takes a research-informed approach to parent-child communication and sexual reproductive health and rights education as outlined in the section above. It is designed to support families as they increase their dialogue about SRHR through sessions both separately and together. This framework allows for the adolescents and the parents/guardians to think and ask questions about their own concerns related to SRHR while also spending time together connecting on topics that can be difficult to bring up.

  8. Financing school feeding: Levers to enhance national programmes

    The WFP Centre of Excellence’s second publication in the Good Practices Series shows examples of successful financing tools for School Feeding Programmes in different countries with diverse contexts. The increase in the attendance and school enrolment; the improvement in students‘ nutrition, health and well-being; the direct and indirect impacts in the families as a whole, and even the encouragement to the human capital development and to local economies, are some examples of the multiple benefits of school feeding. They represent key levers for governments to boost national investments.

  9. What and how: doing good research with young people, digital intimacies, and relationships and sex education

    As part of a project funded by the Wellcome Trust, we held a one-day symposium, bringing together researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, to discuss priorities for research on relationships and sex education (RSE) in a world where young people increasingly live, experience, and augment their relationships (whethers exual or not) within digital spaces. The introduction of statutory RSE in schools in England highlights the need to focus on improving understandings of young people and digital intimacies for its own sake, and to inform the development of learning resources. …

  13. Educational and health impacts of two school feeding schemes: Evidence from a randomized trial in rural Burkina Faso

    This paper uses a prospective randomized trial to assess the impact of two school feeding schemes on health and education outcomes for children from low-income households in northern rural Burkina Faso. The two school feeding programs under consideration are, on the one hand, school meals where students are provided with lunch each school day, and, on the other hand, take-home rations that provide girls with 10 kg of cereal flour each month, conditional on 90 percent attendance rate. After running for one academic year, both programs increased girls’ enrollment by 5 to 6 percentage points. …

    The Sustainable Development Goals mark tremendous progress in addressing women’s sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights. For the first time, an international development framework includes not only targets on services (Targets 3.1 and 3.7), but also targets that address the barriers and human rightsbased dimensions (Target 5.6). Target 5.6 on universal access is measured by two indicators designed to complement each other (Indicators 5.6.1 and 5.6.2).

    Healthy learners are better learners. The foundations of health should be laid down in every school – among which are water, sanitation and hygiene or WASH. Addressing WASH in Schools prevents the most common illnesses among school-age children, develops positive behavior and life skills and helps them to learn better and thrive – ultimately affirming their right to health and education.
