This 5-day integrated course is taken from three existing courses and has been developed to train those who care for mothers and young children in the basics of good infant and young child feeding. After completing this course, participants will be able to counsel and support mothers to carry out WHO/UNICEF recommended feeding practices for their infants and young children from birth up to 24 months of age, and to counsel and support HIV-infected mothers to choose and carry out an appropriate feeding method for the first two years of life. This resource includes a Director's Guide, Trainer's Guide, Participant's Manual, Guidelines for Follow-Up, and slides.
