South Africa case study: Building support and policy change for integrated school health

Abstract

This case study is implemented within the project ‘Fostering policy support for child and family wellbeing - Learning from international experience’. Using a thematic and analytic framework for the project that draws on Kingdon’s multi-streams theory2 we are gathering and sharing evidence and learning on what has led to increased policy recognition of and policy change in family and child health and wellbeing (FCHW). In specific countries that have demonstrated policy recognition and change in FCHW post 2000, we are exploring within their context how different policy actors have come together to raise policy attention, develop policy options and promote their political adoption as processes for policy change, taking advantage of windows of opportunity for that change. The case studies were implemented with a local focal person with direct knowledge or experience of the policy process and include evidence from published and grey literature and interview of key informants involved in the policy processes.
