Breastfeeding: Practice and Policy Certificate Course

Dates: 9 - 27 June 2008

This three-week masters-level certificate held at the Centre for International Development (CIHD) in London, UK is the only advancedlevel international training course on breastfeeding and related topics available worldwide. It is held annually in collaboration with WHO and UNICEF.

The course has been revised to provide an up-to-date scientific, technical and practical training on all aspects of breastfeeding, including policy and programme implementation. It is targeted at doctors and other health or allied professionals involved in national or local infant feeding programmes. Teams from the same country or facility are particularly welcome. The course takes an international perspective and is relevant for participants from all types of economies. The course is limited to 30 participants and is conducted in English.

The full three week Certificate course is in two parts, which can be taken together (recommended) or separately:

Part 1: Clinical Management and Public Health (9-20th June) provides a comprehensive indepth study of breastfeeding, including physiology, practical skills and counselling and hospital/community visits to meet mothers and babies.

Part 2: Addressing Challenges to Optimal Practice and Implementation (23-27th June) provides a series of themed study days on infant and young child feeding, including Complementary Feeding, HIV and Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IFE).

The IFE study day (Wed 25th June) is being carried out in collaboration with the Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) and will be open to external candidates working in the emergencies sector.
