The 2 webinars and three symposiums held to date have engaged participants from government, UNICEF, NGOs, universities and professional associations. This virtual platform enables the active exchange of information and expertise across and within countries and provides a cost-effective method of identifying and disseminating promising practices for providing better care and support to vulnerable populations.
