Infant Feeding during Emergencies
 Activity and Result

 Supporting Documents
Infants and young children are among the most vulnerable groups in emergencies. Interruption of breastfeeding and inappropriate complementary feeding increase the risks ofmalnutrition, illness and mortality. In emergency and relief situations the responsibility for protecting, promoting and supporting beneficial optimal infant and young child feeding practices and minimising harmful practices should be shared by the emergency-affected host country and responding agencies. Concise guidance on how to facilitate appropriate feeding in emergency situations and comply with international emergency standards has been developed by interagency expert working groups. Practical details on how to implement the guidance are included in companion training materials, also developed through interagency collaboration.
