[Unpublished] 1982. 41 p.This report entitled "Alternative Approaches to Daycare" is a result of the Regional Workshop, which took place in Nairobi, Kenya, December 6-11, 1982. The workshop was jointly sponsored by the WHO, Geneva, and UN Children's Fund (UNICEF), eastern Africa Regional Office, Nairobi. The main theme was about the incorporation of more health aspects into the Day Care of Children. It is noted that the common concerns of the WHO and UNICEF resulted in joint efforts to facilitate a forum for countries in Africa to share and exchange experience on health, care and education of young children; propose and plan practical strategies; make recommendations accordingly; and advice concerned government departments and organizations on possible implementation. The majority of the participants were decision and policy-makers and the result of their work is summarized in the following sections: General Introduction; Integration of Care; Health and Education; Examples of Innovative Projects in Africa; Approaches and Strategies to Integration; Constraints and Problems; Monitoring and Evaluation; Training Day Care Personnel; Government Policy and Legislation; Financing; Research and Recommendation.
