Economic Strengthening Programs as Drivers of Child Well-Being: Understanding and Measuring Outcomes

Jun 12, 2013 |
Economic strengthening programs have an impact on children and youth, whether intentionally or unintentionally.  How do we understand the factors that impact child well-being? How do we research and measure them? A June 6 seminar explored examples of field-based practice, including discussions on key initiatives taking place within the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Government, and covered what we still need to explore as development practitioners. The meeting also launched the redesigned Children, Youth, and Economic Strengthening Network's website. Currently in beta, you are invited to visit the site and offer comments.
