Abstract: Infant and young child feeding in emergencies: Background, best practice, and what you can do

In any emergency, infants and young children are particularly vulnerable. Providing appropriate aid is vital to ensure that children have the best chance of surviving. This presentation will describe why infants and young children are at increased risk during times of crisis and outline how aid can support, or sometimes undermine the health of infants and young children. Detail on instruments to support appropriate infant and young child feeding in emergencies will be provided, along with information to assist participants in advocating for appropriate infant and young child feeding in emergencies in their context.
