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).

Project summary

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.
