A product of the Infant Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) Core Group, developed by Save the Children with input of members of an Advisor Group, this report represents the first stock take to highlight Member State adoption of measures to maximize protecting infant and young child feeding in emergencies in line with World Health Assembly Resolution 63.23.


The report examined the degree to which the Member States have incorporated actions outlined in The Operational Guidance for Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (OG-IFE) in the ten years since resolution WHA 63.23 was passed. The findings paint a mixed picture of progress, with some areas progressing and others lagging. The report also highlights six recommendations for Member States, complemented by six recommendations for the humanitarian and development communities to continue progress in protecting infants’ and young children’s survival, health, and wellbeing through the support of IYCF in emergencies.


Both the full report and a summary report are available below.
