The Infant Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) Core Group has put out a call for case studies to be presented during a webinar series later in 2020 focusing on the Infant Feeding in Emergencies Operational Guidance (IFE-OG).
Each webinar will be facilitated by a lead specialist in the field, and provide space for 2 case study presentations from humanitarian and fragile environments.
The IFE-Core Group would like to solicit the submission of relevant Case Studies on the implementation of the IFE-OG. They would like colleagues at the global, regional and country levels to submit ideas that could be considered for sharing during one of the webinars.
A simple 1 page form that should be used to submit your case studies and can be downloaded here.
Please submit your Case Study/Form by COB April 15, 2020.
Feel free to send any queries and requests for clarification directly to Alex or Linda:
- Alex firstname.lastname@example.org, Webinars Working Group coordinator
- Linda email@example.com, IFE CG Facilitator
