Unam begins training day in children’s research – Latest News

The University of Namibia (Unam) launched a three-day children’s research initiative and training conference in Windhoek on Tuesday.

The conference involves a joint partnership with the Ministry of Gender Equality, Poverty Eradication and Social Welfare, the University of Minnesota and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

The initiative is implemented thanks to Namibia’s recognition of the importance of safeguarding the well-being of children.

This also includes steps required by stakeholders and data researchers to strengthen the initiative.

Judith Hall, Unam’s executive dean of health sciences and veterinary medicine, said understanding the state of child welfare in Namibia is the underlying theme of the school’s research.

“The school graduates 57 students each year in sociology and psychology to investigate wellbeing and commitment to leading children to live their best lives. We need data, analysis and structure,” she said.

UNICEF representative in Namibia, Samuel Ocran, said the fund’s work in collecting data leads to better outcomes for children.

“By asking the right questions, Unicef ​​can understand their experiences and ensure that no child is left behind,” he said.

The three-day conference ends Thursday.
