Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies
Operational Guidance for Emergency Relief Staff and Policy-Makers.

The guidance provides concise practical but mainly non technical guidance on how to ensure appropriate infant and young child feeding in emergencies. It is a living document and is updated as new evidence emerges and policies change. It has been endorsed by a large number of agencies, organisations and donors. It is suitable for everyone from nutrition and health workers, logisticians and programme managers to policy makers, at headquarters and field level.

The translation of the Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, Japanese and Chinese versions was supported by the UNICEF-led IASC Nutrition Cluster. The French translation was supported by Fondation Terre des hommes. 

Important note: An amendment to point 5.1.2 and the referenced endnote m has been made to Version 2.1 of the Operational Guidance that was online until 28 February 2007. If you downloaded a copy up to this date, please replace it with the new corrected copy now posted here and delete the previous version. Sorry for the inconvenience, if you have any questions regarding this, email ife@ennonline.net.
