Does your organization want to start IYCF/IYCF-E programs but don’t know how to do it? Do you want to improve the quality or reach of your IYCF/IYCF-E programs? Need help doing it?

Feel free to get in touch with the Tech RRT – we have recently expanded our scope! This means we are now able to provide technical support to individual agencies. National or International organizations as well as health ministries can request our support. All costs for this support are covered by the Tech RRT grant, thanks to USAID/OFDA!

Examples of the kind of activities that the Tech RRT IYCF-E Adviser can support
- Lead IYCF-E assessments or include questions on IYCF-E into broader assessments
- Assess capacity building needs of staff members on IYCF/IYCF-E
- Facilitate trainings, Training of Trainers (TOTs) or orientation sessions
Integrate IYCF-E into current, new, or scaled up nutrition activities: CMAM, micronutrients
- Monitor and do supportive supervision visits of IYCF-E activities to improve quality, including: 1) Supervison of the quality of Breastfeeding assessments, re-lactation, BMS programming, Behavior Change Communication such as one to one counselling; 2) Provide recommendations or corrective actions to improve quality programming
- Advise on integration of IYCF/IYCF-E with other sectors’ programs, i.e. WASH, Food Security and Livelihoods, Child Protection, Health
- Provide orientation or training on the Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes (BMS), including advice on appropriate use or disposal of confiscated BMS
- Lead the development of proposals and budgets for IYCF-E
- Support to develop an IYCF-E strategy or response plan for the organization

In addition to IYCF/IYCF-E, our areas of technical expertise include CMAM (Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition), surveys and assessments and SBC (Social Behavior Change). If you are working for an organization who wants to improve the quality and reach of your nutrition response in any of these areas, please request an advisor!

If you want to request an advisor but don’t think your organization can host them (this does have some responsibilities), we can check to see if one of our consortium members (International Medical Corps, Save the Children, Action Against Hunger) can help out – they are often happy to host.

Want to know more about how it works, please feel free to get in touch: TechRRT@InternationalMedicalCorps.org
