ETHIOPIA: VI African regional conference on child abuse and neglect

The International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) is partnering with ANPPCAN chapters and the Africa-wide Movement for Children to bring you the VIth African Regional Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect with Focus on Early Childhood Development and Education.

Early Childhood is the foundation for overall human development. It is a period when human beings cultivate a culture of tolerance, respect and mutual understanding. It is an important period for socialisation. Early Childhood Development is also a critical period for the development of healthy and responsible citizens and therefore requires special care and attention.

The Conference will serve as a forum for children, parents, teachers, educators, administrators, child care providers, policymakers and all concerned to:

Share experiences and evidence-based practices in early childhood care and education
Share information to guide positive policy and intervention program development on early childhood development and education
Examine challenges and opportunities for early childhood development and education practices in Africa
Explore opportunities for cross-sectoral cooperation in regard to early childhood development and education

The Conference Scientific Committee invites interested scholars and practitioners to submit abstracts for presentation during the Conference.

Conference Themes:

Early Childhood Survival and Care
Early Childhood Education
Early Childhood Protection
Child Rights and Development
Crosscutting Issues
