Module 2 on IYCF-E was developed for health and nutrition workers working to support IYCF in emergency situations. It was developed to fill a gap in content that was accessible to this staff and particular to the challenges of emergency contexts. It is produced by the ENN and managed by the IFE Core Group (link).
Module 2 comprises four parts - a core manual, additional material (including sections on artificial feeding and management of acute malnutrition in infants under six months), annexes and slides content. These are available to download separately or as a complete document.
Module 2 aims to provide those directly involved with infants and carers with the basic knowledge and skills to support safe and appropriate infant and young child feeding. It contains special chapters, in the additional material booklet, on relactation and the management of breast conditions. Additional material also covers the management of severely malnourished infants less than 6 months and artificial feeding in emergencies. It is available in English, French, Arabic and Bahasa (Indonesia)
