Early and accurate communication on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IYCF-E) can save lives by supporting, promoting and protecting the nutrition of infants and young children in an emergency situation. During emergencies, breastfeeding is the strongest protection for your baby’s health and nutrition.
Below are sample key messages to aid responders in effectively communicating to various audiences about IYCF-E in the Ukraine response. These messages were agreed upon through the Infant Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) Core Group Advocacy and Communication Working Group for Ukraine.
The first column outlines the main subject of the messages, while the second column are messages targeted to health care workers and helpers and the third are messages designed for parents and caregivers. The fourth and final column contains possible resources related to these messages.
