Guidance for conducting an IYCF-E assessment

The purpose of this working guidance is to streamline the collection, analysis and interpretation of data on Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) practices for decision-making purposes at sub-national/local levels in humanitarian and fragile contexts. This guidance document is dynamic in nature, as feedback will be collated into subsequent versions based on the inputs, experiences and emerging needs of its intended end-users. It recommends a step-by-step, thought-process aimed at ensuring an evidence-based infant and young child feeding in emergencies (IYCF-E) response and decision-making.

*Please note this is a first iteration of the assessment that will undergo some pilot testing in 2024, but can be used as needed right now.
