Updated Module on IFE available in English and French

Module 2 on Infant Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) was first produced by the IFE Core Group1 and collaborators in December 2004 (version 1). It targets health and nutrition workers working in emergency situations. An updated version (v1.1, December 2007) is now available from the Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) in English and, for the first time, in French. The new version includes updated key references, a revised section on infant feeding and HIV to reflect the latest WHO guidance, and incorporates the current version of the Operational Guidance on IFE (v2.1, Feb 2007).

Module 2 comprises four parts - a core manual, additional material (including sections on artificial feeding and management of acute malnutrition in infants under six months), annexes and slides content. These are available to download separately or as a complete document.

The update and translation into French was funded by the UNICEF-led Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Nutrition Cluster as part of a package of IFE activities implemented by the ENN and the IFE Core Group in 2007.

Module 2, v1.1 is available online in both languages at http://www.ennonline.net/ife/view.aspx?resid=4 or follow the link from the ENN homepage at http://www.ennonline.net

Print copies in French (funded by the WHO) and in English are available from the ENN (postage and packaging charges apply, negotiable for recipients in developing countries). To save on distribution costs, regional sources of print copies in French are being established, including in East and West Africa a n d in the US.

Module 2 is also included on a CD of IFE resources developed for a regional workshop in Bali (see news piece) and CD copies are available from the ENN, at a cost of £2 each (plus P&P).
