This checklist is a tool designed to help each nutrition country cluster review and reflect on the service delivery aspect of the nutrition in emergency response. The checklist is to be used at least once a year by the nutrition cluster coordination country team – or any in-country nutrition in emergency mechanism- to self-assess the quality of the service delivery aspect of the nutrition response before, during and/or after a crisis.
Part of a broader set of nutrition in emergency checklists, this checklist specifically covers Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies. A set of questions are asked in the left column to prompt reflection, elements of the answer and examples from other countries are under the right-hand column. The questions under each theme span the humanitarian program cycle.
A self-scoring tool is also available and is to be used in association with the checklist to help countries review and plan corrective actions.
