Operational Guidance on Infant Feeding in Emergencies (OG-IFE) version 3.0 (Oct 2017)

Author: IFE Core Group
Year: 2017
Resource type: Official

The Operational Guidance on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (OG-IFE) was first produced by the Interagency Working Group on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies in 2001. This Working Group included members of the IFE Core Group; an inter-agency collaboration concerned with the development of training materials and related policy guidance on infant and young child feeding in emergencies (IFE/IYCF-E, hereon referred to as IFE).

Version 2.0 was produced in May 2006; version 2.1 in February 2007 (with addendum in 2010); and version 3.0 in October 2017 to reflect operational experiences and needs and guidance updates. Version 3.0 update was undertaken by the IFE Core Group in consultation with international, regional and country informants, co-led by the Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) and UNICEF and coordinated by ENN. The IFE Core Group gratefully acknowledges all those who advised on and contributed to this and earlier editions.

This update of the OG-IFE was made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
