IFE training planned in London

The Centre for International Health and Development (CIHD) at the Institute of Child Health, London runs a number of courses on infant feeding that examine infant feeding from an international perspective, and are in accordance with the WHO/UNICEF Global Strategy on Infant and Young Child Feeding. Recently in London (21st March 2007), a one day orientation/ training on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) was outlined in a small working group of IFE Core Group members, independent nutritionists, NGOs, and the Infant Feeding Consortium that runs the CIHD courses. The one day training will be incorporated into the Breastfeeding Policy and Practice Course (see below) scheduled for 18 June - 13 July 2007 in London (exact date of the IFE day to be confirmed), and will be open to noncourse participants.

Drawing particularly on the Operational Guidance for Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies1 and on IFE training materials2 developed by the IFE Core Group, the day will be designed with a cross-section of participants in mind. As well as medical and nutrition staff, we welcome the attendance of programme mangers, water and sanitation staff, health personnel, donors and NGO staff. Experience in supporting breastfeeding is not necessary.

Cost will be subsidised/free but places will be limited to 20. If you are interested and would like to learn more, contact Ali Maclaine, ENN, email: alimaclaine@btinternet.com or Marie McGrath, ENN, email: marie@ennonline.net

Breastfeeding: Practice and Policy Course

Places are still available on the four week Breastfeeding: Practice and Policy Certificate Course 18 June - 13 July 2007. Divided into two 2-week modules, the course is designed for doctors and other senior health professionals who are involved in national or local infant feeding programmes as clinicians, trainers, advisers, programme coordinators or advocates for optimal infant feeding. Teams from the same country are particularly welcome. The course is conducted in English. Teaching includes lectures, seminars, role-play, group work, sessions with mothers and babies in the classroom, visits to health facilities and set assignments. Participants are presented with a WHO/UNICEF/CIHD Certificate upon successful completion and full attendance of the course.

For details on fees, on taking the course as separate modules, email bfeed@ich.ucl.ac.uk or visit the website at http://www.ucl.ac.uk where full application forms and full details are available.
