GROUP CARE FOR THE FIRST 1000 DAYS (GC_1000): If it takes a village to raise a child, group care is the first step

Project description

Supporting new moms together

Pregnancy and the first two years of a baby’s life are critical for a child’s future development, health and wellbeing. Mothers from vulnerable groups, especially, need sustainable support in the first 1 000 days of their child’s life. There is evidence that group care models can provide efficient combined help empowering mothers, offering experience, promoting the usage of proper quality clinical services and encouraging healthy behaviours. However, systematisation, guidelines and support are needed in order to create a transformation model. The EU-funded GC_1000 project aims to develop strategies that enable the integration of group care into antenatal and postnatal health systems. Demonstration sites will be established in four low- and middle-income countries and three high-income countries to enable sustained service delivery and explore possibilities for scaling up.
