IFE Core Group
The IFE Core Group is an expert advocacy and resource group on infant and young child feeding in emergencies. It functions as an interagency collaboration with full and associate members.
The Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) is the coordinating agency and its website is a ‘home’ for the resources produced by the IFE Core Group (www.ennonline.net/ife).
Over the years, the IFE Core Group has worked with many agencies, individual experts and directly with field teams and welcomes collaboration.
IFE Core Group funding
Each member identifies their own funds to support their individual engagement in the IFE Core Group. At a minimum, participation will require advocacy, lesson sharing and indentifying gaps.
Additional funds, either sourced through individual agencies or secured as a collective, are identified to undertake specific activities. Additional capacity to undertake activities may be available within member agencies or may need to be expanded, e.g. attaching a consultant to an agency to undertake work.
Feedback and Support
In order to develop and update the policy guidance and training materials, your feedback is vital. Any experiences of using the materials in training, gaps in the materials, or issues around infant feeding in emergences that you wish to share with us, are welcome. There is a commenting facility on each of our resources, which you can use to give us your feedback.
