Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding

Summary: This World Health Organization/United Nations Children’s Fund strategy is the result of a comprehensive two-year participatory process. It is based on the evidence of nutrition’s significance in the early months and early years of life, and the crucial role that appropriate infant feeding practices play in achieving optimal health outcomes. The strategy identifies interventions with proven impact and defines the obligations and responsibilities in this regard of governments, international organizations, and other concerned parties.
