Le IFE Core Group, la GTAM, l’UNICEF, le PAM, Save the Children, Tech RRT et USAID Advancing Nutrition sont heureux de vous inviter tous à participer à deux «cafés» d’apprentissage et de partage qui permettront aux praticiens de la nutrition de partager leurs leçons apprises et des expériences d’adaptation des programmes ANJE au contexte COVID-19.

IFE Core Group, GTAM, UNICEF, WFP, Save the Children, Tech RRT y USAID Advancing Nutrition se complacen en invitarlos a participar en dos “cafés” de aprendizaje y compartir que permitirán practicantes de nutrición para compartir sus lecciones aprendidas y experiencias de adaptar los programas de IYCF al contexto COVID-19.

The IYCF-E operational guidance, alongside relevant GNC-GTAM, WHO and UNICEF, guidance and tools, provide evidence based recommendations on how to adapt and continue IYCF programming also during the COVID-19 pandemic. These learning cafés will provide the opportunity to see how practitioners have been implementing these recommendations.

Protecting breastfeeding and complementary feeding save lives in emergencies and also during the COVID-19 pandemic. Governments, international and national agencies are working hard to ensure that pregnant women, mothers and their children could access appropriate and quality infant and young child feeding services despite the on-going pandemic. 

Country teams have been investing resources and efforts to adapt and modify programmes to ensure the protection of the health workers and the community agents, the women and the children, but at the same time to continue protect and support life nutrition life savings interventions.  

During these learning and sharing cafés practitioners will share how they have adapted their IYCF/IYCF-E programme during the COVID-19 pandemic, what has been the process, the challenges encountered and how they were able to resolve them. An inspiring sharing of experiences that will be enriched by some updates around global guidance for local adaptation.  

Case studies will be presented from the country offices of Concern Worldwide (Somalia) and Save the Children (Colombia, Uganda and Somalia).

Bring a beverage of your choice and join us for a rich and relaxed discussion!
