IFE Core Group Resources and Outputs

The IFE Core Group engages in the development of useful resources and publications on IYCF-E. Documents consist of latest guidance on IYCF-E developed to fill identified gaps, reports that document gaps and needs in IYCF-E programming, and other documents and tools useful in advocacy and communication. In the twenty years since the IFE Core Group was formed it has developed and updated the IYCF in Emergencies Operational Guidance (IYCF-E OpsG), developed and/or contributed to a number of other guidance materials, generated training materials, provided guidance on how to communicate with the media and have held and participated in key meetings and fora.
