Over the years numerous Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) have been involved in developing SSHE programmes in their own countries. The purpose of this Occasional Paper (OP) is to focus on some of the positive developments that are taking place in SSHE. These case studies do not give a recipe for how to create a successful SSHE programme, but they do give indications of issues to consider when developing, implementing or undertaking such a programme. Although each SSHE case study in this publication is unique, the overall goal in each reflects the need to bring the child to the forefront. It is hoped that the case studies will stimulate discussion among those who are interested in the subject. It is not a question of applying the same approach in different areas but to continue to learn from past and present experiences and act on this information. That in itself may be one of the biggest challenges in the continual improvement towards more effective and efficient SSHE programmes.
