The Global Partnership for Education​ have recently announced they will be expanding their support to countries looking to strengthen their national SHN courses. 

The 10th SHN course has therefore been postponed until 2015 to ensure that recent and important developments in the global school health and nutrition community are included in the course syllabus, so that a course better aligned and structured to empower SHN implementers and policy makers to meet child health and education targets in light of this changing post-2015 agenda will be facilitated.
The revised dates for this year's course will be disseminated shortly.  

About the Course

The course will bring together SHN policy makers, United Nations and civil society staff from across Anglophone Africa to focus on effective SHN implementation to benefit the lives of millions of children and advance MDGs on Education and Health.

10 day course breakdown

Co-organised by Partnership for Child Development​ (PCD), the Eastern and Southern Africa Centre of International Parasite Control​​ (ESACIPAC) and and the West African Centre for International Parasite Control​, (WACIPAC) this year's course, celebrated for its 10th year, will train course participants over 10 days, where lectures, workshops, country action plan sessions and field visits will be facilitated. 

According to UNICEF children with disabilities in low and middle income countries have a 90% chance of not attending school and are 1.8 times more like to be neglected than children without disabilities. Seeking to address this issue in the Africa region, the course's key issue in focus will be “Inclusion of the School-Age Child.”  
Course Fee

This year's course fee is US($)1,950 which includes all lectures, training materials, meals, refreshments, field site travel and accommodation. Participants are expected to identify national, institutional or corporate donors willing to cover their course fees as well as personal and travel expenses. PCD can offer assistance in the sponsorship process alongside letters of acceptance to the course and further documentation necessary demonstrating the course's content and impact.  ​
