Investing in early childhood development

first_imgAccording to findings from a published “The Lancet’s Series, Advancing Early Childhood Development: from Science to Scale”, an estimated 43 per cent – 249 million – of children under five in low- and middle-income countries are at an elevated risk of poor development due to extreme poverty and stunting.The Caribbean regional launch of the series took place immediately following the 32nd Meeting of the Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD) on Education, and was hosted by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in collaboration with the Caribbean Community (Caricom) Secretariat.The Series has once again made a strong case for Governments and other stakeholders to work towards designing and implementing effective policies and programmes and allocating the necessary resources to ensure early childhood development.According to the authors of the Series, early childhood development interventions that promote nurturing care – health, nutrition, responsive caregiving, security and safety, and early learning – may cost very little, when combined with existing services such as health.Sylvie Fouet, Representative of UNICEF-Guyana and Suriname, was quoted by Caricom as saying: “The science and economics are clearly on the side of investing in the first 1000 days of a child’s life. The cost of not doing so is higher. Children fall behind long before they set foot in school.”There is, therefore, need for increased global commitment to early childhood development. The consequences of inaction impact not only present but future generations. In the Region, there is less public provisioning for early childhood education, especially for the 0-2 year age group, as opposed to the preschool years. For example, it was explained that the uneven funding distribution across sectors is striking; expenditure on pre-primary as a share of government expenditure on education is only 2.9 per cent compared to primary at 34.9 per cent and 40.3 per cent for secondary education.One of the authors of the Lancet Series, Rafael Pérez-Escamilla, Professor of Epidemiology & Public Health, Director of the Office of Public Health Practice, and Director of the Global Health Concentration at the Yale School of Public Health, presented the research findings and recommendations to Ministers of Education from several Caricom Member States, as well as regional education officials at the COHSOD Meeting.The Series authors propose several ways the global community can scale up support for early childhood development services; these include by: encouraging the adoption and implementation of policies to create supportive environments for families to provide nurturing care for young children; building capacity and strengthening coordination to promote early childhood development through existing health, nutrition, education, social, and child protection services; strengthening measurement and ensuring accountability for early childhood development services; increasing research; fostering global and regional leadership and action and expanding political will and funding through advocacy for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).Guyana must be commended for placing the issue of early childhood development high on its national development agenda. The Government, through a US$1.7 million grant from the World Bank, launched its Early Childhood Development Project. The Project, which came as a result of intense discussions among early childhood educators and other relevant officials, is aimed at improving the emergent literacy and numeracy outcomes for children at the nursery level and primary Grade One in hinterland regions.The first component of the Project caters for capacity building for nursery and Grade One teachers and is aimed at improving the quality of instruction and learning at the nursery and Grade One levels by strengthening teachers’ knowledge, particularly with regard to the implementation of new strategies for the development of emergent literacy and numeracy skills, through an in-service teacher training programme. The second component of the Project targets improved supply of teaching and learning materials.The issue of early childhood development must be taken seriously by all stakeholders as research has shown that a child’s brain develops faster in the first two to three years than at any other time in life. It was proven that these early years are also a critical period of adaptability and responsiveness to interventions.last_img read more

first_imgAgMedica Bioscience Inc. recently received its licence to produce cannabis oil. (Handout) A Chatham-based cannabis producer has been approved to sell cannabis oil products.AgMedica Bioscience Inc. announced it received the go-ahead from Health Canada for a licence amendment effective May 31.The oil sales enable the company to provide medicinal patients and adult-use consumers with greater choice through a portfolio of bottled oils that includes CBD, THC and Balanced varieties, the company stated in a media release on Thursday. “With our oil sales licence now in hand and the potential to leverage the innovative Bio-Herbolysis extraction technology, AgMedica is ideally positioned to gain access to international markets for our products,” said Dr. Trevor Henry, AgMedica CEO, in the release.“I am proud of the continued success realized by AgMedica as we develop further differentiated products that positively contribute to the ongoing evolution of the cannabis sector.”The company stated receiving the oil sales licence represents “another key milestone in AgMedica’s path toward becoming a global leader in the development and commercialization of cannabis and cannabis-derived products designed to support client health and wellness.”Since late 2017, AgMedica has secured all regulatory approvals required to harvest and sell cannabis.Later this year, the company plans to implement larger-scale continuous processing equipment for its own products and potentially to meet the extraction needs of other licensed cannabis [email protected]/DailyNewsTTlast_img read more

EDA awards $2 million to SCC, Jackson County

first_imgTo assist with the construction of a new health sciences building, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration has awarded a grant worth $2,015,395 to Southwestern Community College and Jackson County.The new workforce training facility, which will be located on SCC’s Jackson Campus, is on schedule to be completed in spring of 2021. It will allow SCC to admit 144 additional students in each of the first two years after the building opens, and the project is expected to create 236 new jobs within Jackson, Macon, Swain Counties and the Qualla Boundary.“We are honored and excited that the EDA chose to help fund our project,” said Dr. Don Tomas, President of SCC. “Our new health sciences building is a huge economic development opportunity for our region. There’s a tremendous need for more healthcare professionals. A number of long-term care facilities have beds available right now, but they can’t accept more patients because there aren’t enough qualified individuals available to provide the necessary care. Our new facility will help change that.”In addition to the EDA grant, other funding sources for construction include the Connect NC Bond and the Jackson County one-fourth-of-a-penny referendum, both of which were passed by voters in 2016. Connect NC will contribute approximately $5.4 million, and Jackson County’s investment will be between approximately $12.3 and $14.4 million – depending on bids.College officials plan to bid the project out within a month.“Investment in this new health sciences building is really an investment in our people, both locally and regionally,” said Don Adams, Jackson County Manager. “The educational opportunities that will be made available through this new facility will empower our citizens to improve the quality of their lives for generations.”SCC needs the new building as it has outgrown the Balsam Center, which was built in 1988 to accommodate four healthcare training programs. Southwestern now has 15 health sciences programs, and the new building will allow for three more once approved by the state.According to research conducted by William Brothers, SCC’s Vice President for Financial and Administrative Services, the average starting salaries for each of SCC’s existing health sciences programs exceed the state’s poverty level for a family of four. The proposed new programs also eclipse that same standard.“We’re training people for jobs that can change their lives,” Brothers said. “Our graduates will find fulfilling careers, and they’ll be able to provide for their families while remaining in this beautiful region we call home.”The proposed three-level building will be 55,411 square feet. It will house 23 classrooms and labs, and many of the college’s health sciences programs will offer free community clinics. Among those are Physical Therapist Assistant, Occupational Therapy Assistant and Medical Sonography.For more information about Southwestern and the programs it offers, visit www.southwesterncc.edu, call 828.339.4000 or drop by your nearest SCC location.POSSIBLE BREAKOUT BOXFollowing are the health sciences programs SCC currently offers as well as the ones that may be added following construction of the new building:Current programsEmergency Medical ScienceHealth Information TechnologyHuman Services TechnologyMedical AssistingMedical Laboratory TechnologyMedical SonographyNursingNurse AideOccupational Therapy AssistantOutdoor Leadershipo   Wilderness Emergency Medicineo   Wilderness TherapyPhlebotomy CertificatePhysical Therapist AssistantRadiographyRespiratory TherapyTherapeutic MassageNew Programs (pending state approval)Surgical TechnologyOpticianrySpeech Language Pathology Assistantlast_img read more
