Good nutrition is critical for healthy growth and development of infants and young children. The WHO/UNICEF Global strategy for infant and young child feeding summarizes the actions that governments and other concerned parties should take to protect, promote and support appropriate infant and young child feeding. This brochure presents tools developed and supported by WHO’s Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development, in collaboration with other relevant WHO departments and partners, to facilitate the implementation of the Global Strategy and increase coverage of effective interventions.
