Assessing the nurturing care content of UNICEF's Community-Infant and Young Child Feeding counselling package: Gaps, best practices and lessons learnedThe United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Community-Infant and Young Child Feeding Counselling Package (C-IYCF CP) is used globally for infant and young child feeding (IYCF) counseling. The study aimed to: 1) identify and map existing nurturing care content within UNICEF's C-IYCF CP; 2) identify gaps related to nurturing care or feeding elements within the C-IYCF CP; 3) identify country level nurturing care adaptations to the C-IYCF CP; and 4) identify best practices and lessons learned from country adaptations that can be recommended for inclusion in the C-IYCF CP.
See the supplementary files to view the codebook and summaries of C-IYCF CP adaptations in China, Cuba, Ecuador, Kenya, Nepal, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone.
