Review of Operational Guidance on IFE

In 2001, an Operational Guidance on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies was developed by an Interagency Working Group, supported by 30 INGOs/ NGOs/UN agencies. It aims to provide concise guidelines to emergency relief staff, policy makers and donors on appropriate infant and young child feeding in emergencies.

The Operational Guidance is currently under revision by the IFE Core Group who invite anyone with experiences of using the Operational Guidance or who has comments on its content to contact the group via the ENN. Notification of a revised version will be posted on the ENN website and other relevant sites.

The current document, Operational Guidance for Emergency Relief Staff and Programme Managers on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies, is available in print from the ENN, or at the ENN website,

If your agency would like to be included in the list of supporting agencies, you can post your support on the ENN website or register your interest by emailing Marie McGrath,
