Booklets

Pamphlets should be printed and given to caregivers to keep. They are a valuable tool because they contain detailed information and caregivers can refer to them as often as they need to.

If you can print only one kind of pamphlet, we suggest it is the How to Raise a Happy and Healthy Child below.

How to Raise a Happy and Healthy Child Book

This booklet supplements the Road to Health book. It contains exactly the same educational content for caregivers as the Road to Health book, but it doesn’t contain any health records immunisation schedules or growth charts.

How to Raise a Healthy and Happy Child booklet is an important supplementary tool because it is available in all 11 official languages, unlike the Road to Health, which is only available in English.

Print and Distribute

  • To caregivers have been issued the new Road to Health book but are not confident English readers.
  • To caregivers who have been issued the old Road to Health book but would benefit from the information because their child is still under 5 years.
  • To caregivers who spend a lot of time with a child under 5 but who may not have access to the Road to Health book – like grandparents and day mothers.
