Planning Guide for national implementation of the Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding

A guide on how to make the Global Strategy for IYCF into national policies and for it to work. The Global Strategy is one of the policies that mandates the IFE Core Group's work on IFE and so it is important that it is put in national policies. IFE should be part of this but if not this guide could still help with putting IFE into national policies.
