Post a reply: IYCF-E in for families in COVID-19 quarantine

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

COVID-19 quarantine has created new challenges for IYCF-E regarding families in quarantine who have infants and young children. In different countries, families are being kept in closed conditions in hotel rooms or homes and not able to leave. They are reliant on authorities to bring them food. I have reports of problems in Australia where police are managing quarantine in hotels and in Vietnam where the military are providing food. It seems that there has not been any consideration that the Operational Guidance on Infant and Young Child Feeding should apply in this situation. I was wondering if others have seen similar in other countries? I would be most grateful to hear any accounts of experiences elsewhere. Please feel free to reply here or email me
