Announcing 6 Barnahus openings during January to May 2022, the outcome of Cyprus’ UN CRC periodic report, Scotland’s Barnahus vision, and South Korea’s referencing of the Barnahus model, and more.
Since November 2021, the Swedish Institute has been co-funding a PROMISE project which is delivering training and exchange to Armenia, Estonia, Georgia, and Moldova.
During 2021, the Network played a key consultative role for a number of countries on their journeys to establishing or expanding their Barnahus, and engaged with international actors to spread a common understanding of the model and to unlock opportunities for collaboration and funding.
Members agreed on the need for exchange, research, and guidance on scaling up Barnahus nationally. In particular: information about how many locations and of which size are needed to service a population, ensuring quality services nation wide, and ensuring equitable services for remote, small, or marginalized communities.
