Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IYCF-E) - What Does the Science Tell Us?

A scientific repository

On this page you find a repository that provides an overview of what peer-reviewed journal articles currently state on Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) in an emergency context. It is compiled for the IFE Core Group by the Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University and the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The repository aims to provide the reader with a snapshot of what is published with updates on a quarterly basis. All publications provide emerging evidence related to IYCF in emergency settings such as natural disasters, conflicts, displacement including refugee settings. 

The repository originates from the identified need to develop a system to compile and share new IYCF-E research and build a virtual library of some of the most recent findings.

The repository covers articles published since 1st January 2022 and provides excerpts and abstracts. The repository also gives the link to many of the full papers if they are Open Access. Publications are selected using specific search engines (see 'About the Repository').
