Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies: An analysis of key factors of a strong response

Author: TechRRT
Year: 2018
Resource type: Report

In both development and emergency settings, infant and young child feeding (IYCF) programming is focused on actions to promote and support safe and appropriate feeding practices which will ensure the survival, growth and development of children under two years of age.

In this study we explored factors that supported or inhibited a strong IYCF-E response in three emergencies: The El Niño drought in Ethiopia in 2015-2016; the earthquake in Nepal in 2015; and the ongoing Syrian crisis.
