Healthy Start in China

Ensuring all children, including those who are marginalised, realise their right to survival, care and development

Plan International China is committed to ensuring a healthy start for ehnic minority and marginalised children.

We use our expertise in the sector to support home and community-based early childhood care and development services. We provide education sessions for parents that emphasise gender equality, health, hygiene and nutrition, education and support for marginalised families.

We are working towards improvements in the quality of pre-school education in China and we are piloting schemes that support children’s transition to school in ethnic minority areas. This includes reading projects in different languages, capacity building for teachers and activities to improve children’s knowledge of health, nutrition, disaster risk reduction, hygiene and sanitation.
