Parenting for Lifelong Health (PLH)

A suite of three parenting programmes to prevent violence

Work has been initiated on the development and testing of a suite of three affordable parenting programmes to prevent violence for low-resource settings. This suite of programmes is called Parenting for Lifelong Health (PLH) and is being developed through a collaboration between WHO’s Department of Violence and Injury Prevention and Disability, Stellenbosch University in South Africa, the University of Cape Town in South Africa, Bangor University in Wales, and the University of Oxford in England. PLH is made up three programmes, each for a specific age group:

  • PLH for Babies and Toddlers for children aged 0-23 months
  • PLH for Young Children for children aged 2-9 years old
  • PLH for Adolescents for children aged 10-17 years old
