Parenting for Lifelong Health (PLH)
Introduction: A suite of parenting programmes to prevent violence
Work has been initiated on the development and testing of a suite of 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, Stellenbosch University in South Africa, the University of Cape Town in South Africa, Bangor University in Wales, the universities of Oxford and Reading in England, and UNICEF.
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
