Post a reply: Mapping of Resources on MBAs, Baby Friendly Spaces and IYCF Corners

DOES YOU AGENCY HAVE GUIDANCE ON HOW TO IMPLEMENT A MOTHER BABY AREA? HAVE YOU WRITTEN AN ARTICLE ON YOUR EXPERIENCES OF RUNNING AN IYCF CORNER? WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU! 

ENN (as the GTAM’s KM partner) are developing a summary brief on Mother Baby Areas/ Baby Friendly Spaces and IYCF Corners in collaboration with the IFE-Core Group (as the GTWG on IYCF-E for GTAM). We would like to ask for your help in mapping relevant resources. 

A bit of background as to why this is being done: last year a number of technical needs assessment activities were carried out to identify technical gaps in NiE for the GTAM to address as a matter of priority. The findings of this process are summarized in the GTAM Baseline Technical Needs Assessment Report. One of the needs identified under IYCF-E was to “review current guidance on IYCF Corners and MBAs to streamline and widely disseminate.” Following a review of gaps under IYCF-E by the IFE-CG Steering Committee, it was recommended that a review should be undertaken and a technical summary brief developed which pulls together existing information and identifies any gaps. 

As a first step, we would like to please ask for your help in mapping all relevant resources pertaining to Mother Baby Areas / Baby Friendly Spaces and IYCF Corners.

In particular, we are looking for global, agency and country level guidelines/ guidance manuals, training materials, articles documenting implementation experiences and research papers - or any other materials that you think might be helpful in guiding practitioners on how to design, plan for, implement and monitor these spaces. 

With thanks
