Operational Guidance on Infant Feeding in Emergencies

Author: Infant Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) Core Group

This is an operational guidance on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies. It was introduced in 1999 to outline evidence-based actions to safeguard the health of infants and young children in emergencies and has been revised in 2017 to reflect updated evidence and operational experience. The guidance is intended for policy-makers, decision-makers and programmers working in emergency preparedness and response, including governments, United Nations (UN) agencies, national and international non-governmental organisations (NGOs), donors, volunteer groups and the private/business sector.

View the guidance in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Bahasa Indonesia, Bangla, Arabic, Swahili, Portuguese, Croatian, Hindi, Ukranian and Turkish here.
