Emerging evidence has shown how critical and effective self-care can be. When women, children and adolescents are empowered to adopt healthy self-care practices, they can play a critical role in protecting their own health.

To promote self-care practices around key sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health issues during the COVID-19 pandemic, PMNCH is partnering with WHO and other UN partner agencies to develop a series of short animated videos to promote healthy behaviours during the pandemic. These videos help translate the latest WHO guidance on self-care practices for women, children adolescents and their families in relation to key issues arising in the context of COVID-19.
