UNHCR Policy Related to the Acceptance, Distribution and Use of Milk Products in Refugee Settings

The protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding and appropriate complementary feeding are essential to the well-being of infants and young children. Inappropriate handling of milk products in refugee settings can negatively impact on infant feeding practices and directly contribute to increased morbidity and mortality in this age-group. This policy aims to assist and guide on the acceptance, distribution and use of milk products in refugee settings.
