Infant and young child feeding: A tool for assessing national practices, policies and programmes

This assessment tool is designed to assist in gathering and presenting relevant information; in determining the strengths and weaknesses of national policies and programmes to protect, promote and support appropriate feeding practices; and in deciding where improvements may be needed to meet the aim and objectives of the Global Strategy. Ideally, an intersectoral team – including, for example, programme managers and staff responsible for nutrition and maternal and child health, academics, and national and international nongovernmental organizations – will use the tool as a basis for strengthening national policies and programmes that contribute to improved infant and young child feeding.
