Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IYCF-E) Infographic Series

In 2021, the Infant Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) Core Group published the Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IYCF-E) infographic series to assist in implementing specific actions and recommendations within the Operational Guidance on IYCF-E. In recent months, READY has supported the IFE Core Group to translate the two of the infographics into Spanish, French, and Arabic:
1) Infant feeding during infectious disease outbreaks: a guide for policy makers, and
2) Infant feeding during infectious disease outbreaks: a guide for programmers
