IYCF-E Individual Capacity Assessment tool for Health and Nutrition Service Providers

Assessment of available capacities to provide context-specific orientation/training on IYCF-E is one of the six practical steps set out in the Operational Guidance on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies developed by the IFE Core Group. The capacity assessment tool can be used before an emergency (in the preparedness phase) as well as during an emergency. This tool was developed to help organisations understand what individual technical capacity exists and what types of capacity development activities are needed to provide high quality IYCF services during a humanitarian emergency. Lack of organisational, financial, and human resource capacity can be a barrier to providing quality IYCF services. Therefore, this individual capacity assessment tool should be used as part of a wider capacity assessment.This IYCF-E individual capacity assessment tool was developed by Save the Children and the Technical Rapid Response Team (Tech RRT) with the support of the members of the IFE Core Group.
