Translated Operational Guidance on IFE now available

The Operational Guidance on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies for programme and emergency relief staff (Ops Guidance) provides concise, practical (but non-technical) guidance on how to ensure appropriate infant and young child feeding in emergencies. Version 2.1 (February, 2007) has just been produced by the IFE Core Group, to reflect recent field experiences on implementation and developments in policy guidance since version 2.0 was completed in May 2006.

Verison 2.1 of the Ops Guidance is currently available online and in print in English and French. Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic versions will be completed in March 2007 and Russian, Bahasa (Indonesia) and Kiswahili updates/translations soon afterwards.
