I know that the IYCF-E working groups are continously developing and updating a number of great documents such as operational, technical guidelines and fact sheets pertaining to IYCF-E. Most of these generic documents are being implemented globally by UN, INGOs and government stakeholders in emergencies and development contexts.  However, through my experiences working in different countries, these generic documents are not fully or partially adapted and or informed through formative researchs to specific locality and context; even if they have been adapted, they are not supported with strong SBC tools.

Apart from the IYCF traditional monitoring and evaluation tools (measurements of indicators), is there any monitoring or quality checklist tools for OG-IFE or IYCF technical guidelines whether they are informed with SBC during implementation at least at the country level?

thanks for the questions....

there are few tools available, already in WHO and UNICEF Training materials. There are others that may provided some guidance and insight too like the IYCF-E checklist:

or the following: (IYCF observation checklist) (CF monitoring tool) (Counselling tool)

At the agency level we are using a simple checklist to help monitor the quality of services being example from Ethiopia here (not specific to emergencies):

Other tools maybe found here:

Thanks and let me know

Hello, Daniel, I'm interested in the SBC part of your question. When you have seen the adaptation of guidance to local contact, what kinds of SBC tools do you think are missing - ie, what is needed to support?
