copertina Planning Guide Planning guide for national implementation of the Global strategy for infant and young child feeding


The purpose of this Guide for National Implementation is to help translate the aim, objectives and operational targets of the Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding into concrete, focused national strategy, policy and action plans. The guide is written for programme managers in governments and their partners, primarily those working in maternal and child health and nutrition. It proposes a step-wise process to develop a country-specific strategy, with plans to be implemented in support of appropriate infant and young child feeding, especially in the first two years of life.
